Condition Report

Two rare works bound together, the Ragionamenti in first edition. Sources of primary importance on the Commedia dell'Arte. Andreini oppose the extravagances quixotic of the Captain to the common sense and irony of the servant Trappola, according to a very dear dialogical scheme to the art comedy. In 1612 Andreini published the Ragionamenti Fantastic, a work that, by topic and situation, referring to the first role he played: the Lover next to his wife Isabella. It is a collection of dialogues with two or three voices: some are small comedies.
