Christian Genetelli, Storia dell’epistolario leopardiano. Con implicazioni filologiche per i futuri editori, Milano, LED, 2016, pp. 182

Martina Romanelli


With his latest publication, Christian Genetelli focuses again on Giacomo Leopardi’s correspondence. Looking for a new method to ascertain one of the collateral sources, which traditionally contributes to historical, biographical and aesthetical research, this book revolves around a sort of editorial cold case, i.e. the earliest collections of Leopardi’s epistles. At the same time, it may also represent a beginning for other editions, based a philological premise that could lead to a new critical edition of the text.
