Ilaria Crotti’s essay analyzes the short stories by Arrigo Boito (L’Alfier nero, Iberia, La musica in piazza. Ritratti di giullari e menestrelli moderni, Il pugno chiuso, Il trapezio), published between 1867 and 1874, paying particular attention to the aesthetic debate of the Scapigliatura movement. The journey theme is also examined, in its various meanings, interpreted by observing plot’s construction and the innovative elaboration of character status in the second half of the nineteenth century.
