Girolamo Bartolommei’s literary research is characterised by the narration of actions carried out by sacred and profane subjects and by the narration of ancient fabulae, re-interpreted according to the principle of moral utility. Girolamo Bartolommei dealt with different forms of lyrical, epic, dramaturgical and musical writing, recalling 'the benign readers' of his works to the ethical and social function of poetry. His work Didascalia cioè dottrina comica (“Caption, that is comic doctrine” printed in Florence in 1658 and reprinted in 1661), of which the critical edition is here introduced, is of particular interest for the peculiarity of the theoretical proposal. Such proposal is ascribable to the aesthetic of the academy theatre, aimed at demonstrating to young writers that only the 'honesty' and the decorum of a 'well-ordered comedy' could lift the fate of comic art from the degradation in which it had fallen. The author tries to convey this idea by proceeding from questions of general poetics up to the 'sketches of middle comedies' he composed himself.

Girolamo Bartolommei was born in Florence at the end of the sixteenth century. During his life, he actively participated in the literary and theatrical life of his time joining Florentine and Roman academic forums. Here he embraced the aspiration for a poetic reform that, starting from the postridentine Catholic thinking, had developed among the schools of the Jesuit fathers and had spread in the ‘societas literaria’ also thanks to the intense cultural policy promoted by Pope Barberini. He died in Florence in 1662.
Sandro Piazzesi collaborates in the course of Theory of Literature at the University of Florence. He teaches Italian language and literature in public schools and at the Carlo Bo University Institute in Florence. He is interested in theoretical and philological issues related to the literature of the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Among his publications: a monograph on Girolamo Borsieri (Firenze University Press 2009) and an essay on the sacred tragedy of the seventeenth century.
