[ENG] This paper focuses on Giovan Battista Andreini, an Italian author and actor from the 17th century; the aim of this study is to delve more deeply into Andreini’s ideas on literature and theatre, not only into his theoretic formulations but also into the way they are put into practice directly in his texts, especially in liminar areas such as dedications and prefaces. The experimental vein of his production has often proved noteworthy to the eyes of many critics; yet some of his less-known works can prove interesting to read in the light of his whole activity and production. Such works are Ismenia, a ‘third genre’-oriented play (1639), and the mock-heroic poem Olivastro in its different versions (two prints in 1606 and 1642; plus a newly-rediscovered manuscript).

Abstract

[ENG] This paper focuses on Giovan Battista Andreini, an Italian author and actor from the 17th century; the aim of this study is to delve more deeply into Andreini’s ideas on literature and theatre, not only into his theoretic formulations but also into the way they are put into practice directly in his texts, especially in liminar areas such as dedications and prefaces. The experimental vein of his production has often proved noteworthy to the eyes of many critics; yet some of his less-known works can prove interesting to read in the light of his whole activity and production. Such works are Ismenia, a ‘third genre’-oriented play (1639), and the mock-heroic poem Olivastro in its different versions (two prints in 1606 and 1642; plus a newly-rediscovered manuscript).
