The legacy of G. Giraldi Cinzio and the new Italian philological journal Studi giraldiani. (Review article)

Lozinskaya E.V.


This article reviews the 2015–2021 publications in a new philological journal devoted to the work of Giovan Battista Giraldi Cinzio. The journal’s authors focus on Giraldi’s collection of novellas Ecatommiti, his dramaturgical texts, the intertextual connections of his works with the visual arts, and the problems of textology and the preparation of critical editions of Giraldi’s legacy. The journal also publishes comparative works revealing the significance of Giraldi for other national cultures as well as studies that raise general questions about the specificity of Renaissance literature or reconstruct the historical context in which the Ferrara author was formed and worked.
