Dialogues between Scholars. Philology in Fracassetti Correspondence
Keywords:Francesco Petrarca, Giuseppe Fracassetti, Translations, Letters collection, Philology
In the general revival of Petrarch’s work during XIX century, Giuseppe Fracassetti stands out from all contemporary scholars for his translations of the Latin Letters of Petrarch. His large correspondence testifies a rich activity of translation. This paper presents this correspondence, preserved in the Fondo Fracassetti of the Library Spezioli in Fermo: some letters published here, in particular with the commentary to Familiari and Senili, witness the birth of a ‘modern’ philological method.
