The students has to demonstrate sufficient knowledge of all the course subjects: introduction to the discipline and its methodologies; ability to read and judge a critical edition; general knowledge of the authors and works explored in the course; translation and philological commentary of a text read in the course. Clearness of exposition will also be evalued, as well as the use of the specialized lexicon.

Tito Strozzi, Eroticon libri: transmission and establishment of the text.
Tito Strozzi's work is transmitted trough several manuscripts and a sixteenth-century edition, in which textual variants are possibly due to editorial intervention. The modern edition (by A. Della Guardia, 1916) is unsatisfactory. During the course we will check the modern edition in the light of the ms. tradition.
The examination of the documented composition phases of the work will put students in contact with the concrete development of the literary creation and the methodology applicable to the critical edition of a work that presents the typical problems related to the transmission of a humanistic text.
This part of the course will be preceded by a few introductory lectures on the principles of philology, of humanistic philology in particular, on the author and his works and on the editions of these works.
