Giovanni Guidiccioni "oltre il circolo del Petrarca"

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Giovanni Guidiccioni "beyond the circle of Petrarch"

Maria Chiara Tarsi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


[Autom. eng. transl.] Guidiccioni's poetic work is placed in the context of the variegated Roman Petrarchism of the Farnese age, mobile and fluid; resistance to the progressive imposition of the choices made by Bembo has been recorded and the canon of the 'excellent authors' is not yet exclusive. Against this background, the guidiccionian lyric stands out for its moderate experimentalism and is enlivened by suggestions from different origins, looking at both the classical and modern sides. The article proposes a reading of it, in order to probe the poet's attitude towards the Petrarchist model, also in light of the reflections contained in a well-known letter to Antonio Minturno, in which Guidiccioni proposed listening to new "voices" and the search for a «mixed style» to combine inventive freedom and respect for tradition.
