Starting from some of Tasso’s quotations in Conte di Carmagnola, the essay considers the importance given to the teaching of the late sixteenth-century epic poet in Manzoni’s work. In Gerusalemme liberata – this is the author’s purpose in the following pages – the Milanese writer could catch not only some elements useful to the representation of the inner man, but also a series of episodes which, inserted in their original diegetic development, can provide a moral teaching, too, not to mention the rest. Through some crossreferences to Tasso’s poem, the intertextual mechanism, as other rhetorical solutions, involves and forms the ideal Manzoni’s spectator, that is – as everybody knows – the judgespectator, constantly invited to consider the moral plausibility of the represented actions.
