Errori e varianti d’autore nel De mulieribus claris del Boccaccio

Contenuto principale dell'articolo

According to Vittorio Zaccaria, the last two (of nine) editorial stages of Boccaccio’s De mulieribus claris are represented by the autograph MS: Florence, Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana, Plut. 90 sup. 98/1. Nevertheless, the presence of hardly justifiable errors in this MS suggests the need for a re-examination of the editorial reconstruction proposed by Zaccaria. For this reason, my essay presents a detailed analysis of ancient texts consulted by Boccaccio for those chapters that contain erroneous information (especially De Medea and De Proba), and a compared study of other boccaccian erudite works. The results of this analysis suggest the possible presence of some authorial corrections, paving the way for an invertion of the redactional phases.
