[Autom. eng. transl.] The 1859 Salon of Charles Baudelaire appears as an emblematic text to understand the sources of which the founder of French Symbolism was inspired in the elaboration of his own theory concerning the powers of the imagination: following the traces of which the writer parsed his Salon, we will report on the origin of the Baudelairian conception that goes back to the presuppositions established by English and German Romanticism. Then, we will see how Baudelaire renews a rich theoretical heritage, learned directly and indirectly through his cultural training and his work as a translator, inaugurating an original conception of imaginative art, an art "positively related to the infinite", and a "Rhetoric of correspondences", which opens to a new thought of the poetic sign.
