Description

Though recorded as a single work, the two manuscripts Florence, BNC, II.I.20-21 are note really related: the first one contains the so-called Proloqui nella Rettorica and an incomplete Ragionamento della poesia; the second manuscript is made up of 5 different sections: 1. Arrighetti's translation of Aristotle's Rhetoric, book I, followed by the same author's esposizione; 2. a summary of Aristotle's Rhetoric; 3. Arrighetti's 56 lectures on Rhetoric, book I; 4. Proloqui nella Rettorica (the same text in ms. II.I.20); 5. Proloqui nella Poetica (= complete version of the Ragionamento della poesia in ms. II.I.20). All these materials are related to the Accademia degli Svegliati of Pisa: the academy was founded in 1588 by some members of the Accademia degli Ardenti and merged into the Accademia dei Lunatici in 1621 (cf. Maylender 1929: V, 282 sgg.; Salvini 1965).
