The article analyses the traits that are peculiar to Luigi Da Porto’s novella of Giulietta and Romeo, highlighting that, if compared with Bandello’s more successful version, it is based on a meaningful interplay of silence and simulation which influences all the characters. In this way, Da Porto’s story proves to be a tragedy of appearance and denied communication. Furthermore, this article shows that the peculiarities of Da Porto’s novella lead to the identification of a specific ‘Veneto’ tradition of the Veronese lovers’ story, which is not only anchored in the fifteenth-century local novella, represented by the "Refugio de’ miseri", but involves also other genres, from the poem in ‘ottave’ (Gherardo Boldieri’s "L’infelice amore dei due fedelissimi amanti Giulia e Romeo") to the tragedy (Luigi Groto’s "Adriana").

Abstract

The article analyses the traits that are peculiar to Luigi Da Porto’s novella of Giulietta and Romeo, highlighting that, if compared with Bandello’s more successful version, it is based on a meaningful interplay of silence and simulation which influences all the characters. In this way, Da Porto’s story proves to be a tragedy of appearance and denied communication. Furthermore, this article shows that the peculiarities of Da Porto’s novella lead to the identification of a specific ‘Veneto’ tradition of the Veronese lovers’ story, which is not only anchored in the fifteenth-century local novella, represented by the "Refugio de’ miseri", but involves also other genres, from the poem in ‘ottave’ (Gherardo Boldieri’s "L’infelice amore dei due fedelissimi amanti Giulia e Romeo") to the tragedy (Luigi Groto’s "Adriana").
