Description

An original Italian easy reader by Francesca Colombo

Nel 1500 nasce in Italia un nuovo modo di fare teatro. Si tratta della “Commedia dell’arte”, un tipo di teatro popolare che prende vita nelle piazze.

Le rappresentazioni non si basavano su un copione ben definito ma, piuttosto, su un “canovaccio” ovvero una traccia generica della storia. Toccava poi agli attori improvvisare le battute.

Le “arti” erano le corporazioni dei lavoratori di uno stesso settore. C’era dunque anche una “arte” degli attori. Fino al 1564 le compagnie di attori erano composte di dieci uomini…

    As a follower of “Upstart Crow” I was already primed to enjoy this story, though it took me a while to get round to it as it’s been such a busy year. As always, the story is well written and each chapter leads you on to the next. Once I started, I couldn’t wait to finish it. The text was a little more challenging than previous easy readers that I’ve bought, but that’s good too. I’m looking forward to re-reading it again at a slower pace, with pauses for the exercises that I have still to do.

    I’ll be honest, this one was a challenge for me. I’m at about B2 but usually read at a slightly higher level. I’ve read a few “real” books in Italian without too much difficulty and have enjoyed other Easy Readers at C1 and C2. With this one, I couldn’t really follow the audio, so ended up reading the text. I managed to follow the gist without looking things up but there were a lot of new words (which is good) and I think some of the language is a bit archaic (which would be realistic, although I may be wrong on this.) I thought the book was really interesting though – and it’s a true story! The characters are engaging and I could picture the action. I will probably read it again to focus on vocabulary and have been inspired to find out more about commedia dell’arte.

    This is interesting and enjoyable read for anyone, but especially for someone who enjoys historically-based fiction. I was able to picture the characters and scenes which is very important with any story that you want to read both for pleasure and as a learning tool. I look forward to reading it many more times, as well as listening to the text on Soundcloud. It’s an excellent way to absorb new vocabulary and sentence structures.

      Many thanks for being the first to leave a review, Margaret. We appreciate it. I enjoyed the story too and so was disappointed not to have had feedback from our readers.
      Buon anno
