abstract

In 1918 Italo Montemezzi set La nave to music, a close adaptation by Tito Ricordi of Gabriele d’Annunzio’s tragedy of the same name. The essay discusses the presence and role of landscape, together with its marginality, in the original play, in the ensuing libretto, in Montemezzi’s score and in the stage-set designs of significant historical stagings of the opera. It analyses the specific strategies the poet, the musician and the set designer enacted to stage a plot taking place at the eve of the foundation of Venice in the Adriatic Lagoon
