Interpretatio nominis e giochi onomastici nei lirici veneziani del secondo Cinquecento
This paper analyses the word puns based on names used by the poets involved in Domenico Venier academy, in the late XVI century Venice. The author considers the works of Girolamo Molin, Girolamo Fenaroli, Domenico Venier, Giacomo Zane, Gabriele Fiamma, Celio Magno, Orsatto Giustinian, Luigi Groto, and Veronica Franco. If sometimes the pun is only the shallow element of a matching poem, in the cases of Venier and Zane the name of a woman is a senhal, spread or alluded in a whole sequence of poems. In the last paragraphs, the author tries to demonstrate that the acrostic sonnets by Domenico Venier have some similarities to those of the Amorum libri by Matteo Maria Boiardo. This could be an evidence of the role of Domenico Venier in the publication of some poems by Boiardo in a poetic anthology edited in 1565 by Dionigi Atanagi.
