La fisica

Title

La fisica

Description

Paolo Del Rosso's La fisica is an interesting example of poetical reworking of Aristotle's Physics. The work is conceived as a compendium of the treatise, but it is largely indebted to Dante's poetry as well, in terms of both structure and content. Ms. Florence, BNC, Magl. VI.243 is a miscellaneous codex containing several works by different authors (including Leon Battista Alberti and Luigi Alamanni) and related to the circle of Giovanni Berti. The copy is not autograph and very probably follows the printed edition of La Fisica (Paris: Pierre Le Voirrier, 1578); ms. Florence, BNC, Pal. 349 is instead an autograph copy by Jacopo Corbinelli who was the editor of the text as well as the author of the commentary on La Fisica which follows Del Rosso's text in the parisian edition of 1578. The manuscript does not contain such commentary, but several marginal glosses which attest a sort of preliminary redaction of Corbinelli's annotations.
