Traducir comedias de Lope al italiano
De Las bizarrías de Belisa a L’audace Belisa
Today, on Italian stages, the Spanish Golden Age theatre is almost unknown. To explain this absence, we must take into account both reasons related to Italian stage culture and linguistic reasons. First of all, it should be noted that this theatre is perceived as something far from our scenic customs, especially because it has been transmitted according to a very partial and topical vision. This is the reason why, when translating texts, it is necessary to deepen the knowledge of the starting context (Baroque Spanish culture, Lope de Vega, his comedies, other texts belonging to the same years and genre). Secondly, this absence is due to formal reasons, mostly the problem of verses.
