Un’ultima polemica ‘giornalistica’ per l’ottantaquattrenne Saverio Bettinelli

Gilberto Pizzamiglio    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



Saverio Bettinelli’s last works consist of some volumes of pseudo-letters and verses ‘in the feminine’ which certainly contrast with his production prior to the Jesuit suppression. About these works lively controversy was created by those who considered them to be frivolous and morally dangerous. These are the accusations made against him in 1800, with a series of journalistic articles wrote by an unknown author now identified with the lawyer Luigi Bramieri, an energetic supporter of completely opposite classicist positions. These articles were followed by the reply of a still lively Bettinelli.
