abstract

La Pisanelle is a work in which the author realises his ideal of ‘total theatre’. Written in French, it presents all the typical elements of d’Annunzio’s work. In particular, it is characterised by a remarkable visual component and by the repetition of the topical of the dancer-harlot. So there is an evident link with the painting of Gustave Moreau, the painter known and loved by decadent artists, who has presented in his paintings many figures of femmes fatales, cruel and insensitive prostitutes. On this model d’Annunzio built the character of the protagonist of his work, and also the particular exotic scenography of the pièce.
