Per una prima schedatura della raccolta zeniana dei drammi per musica dal 1701 al 1750 (Venezia, Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana)
The present essay is an ideal continuation of M. Laini’s work, «La rac- colta zeniana di drammi per musica veneziani della biblioteca nazionale marciana 1637-1700» (1995). It provides a first research and cataloguing of the material referring to the period 1701-1750, which was not considered by the former inven- tory. That was obtained by consulting the library’s topographical catalogue and by relating the information therein. Its purpose is to give an additional scientific instrument for the study of Zeno’s melodramatic production as well as of the 17th-18th century librettos, and for a better comprehension about how rich may be this considerable theatrical fund conserved at Biblioteca Marciana (Venezia).
