Articulating Intra- and Intertextual Relationships in the Fragment Collection

Leopardi’s Zibaldone presents a compelling study of semantic relations between textual fragments because the author’s interpretive annotations form complex intra- and intertextual networks that elude close reading. The Digital Zibaldone project has built the foundation of a semantic digital edition to reconstruct the discourse order of Leopardi’s intellectual inquiries and his reception of fictional and scholarly works, while offering readers some tools for their analysis. Its larger research framework aims to create synergy between the hermeneutic project of the fragment genre and digital methods of knowledge representation.
