Una rappresentazione varsaviense della goldoniana Donna di garbo
Due to the interest in the Italian Theater by the Court of Saxony in the mid-18th century, some comedies by Carlo Goldoni were exported from Venice to Dresden and Warsaw. For greater ease of the German and Polish public, the plot of the comedies was summarised in special printed brochures, many of which are now kept at the Landesbibliothek and the Staatsarchiv in Dresden. The leaflet of La Donna di garbo, which is studied here, presents interesting differences compared to the comedy that Goldoni printed since 1750. These differences allow us to partially reconstruct how the comedy was actually represented between the date of its composition, 1742, and the first printed edition controlled by Goldoni.
