This paper highlights the importance of the work of Torquato Tasso for European culture through an analysis of some significant moments of his legacy, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. After a brief investigation of the musical theatre, we will focus on the connection between Tasso’s works and those of Rousseau, Goethe and Goldoni. Our essay ends with an analysis of the presence of Tasso in Manzoni, especially considering the parody of canto xvi of Jerusalem Delivered, written by the Milanese author with his friend Ermes Visconti : Manzoni’s reflection (including that on Tasso’s poetry) seems to find its perfect place within the European cultural landscape.
