The study aims to show the fertility of the Ovidian representation of the phenomena of nature through the study of poetic works of the Renaissance. Ovid develops a specific poetics to represent the generative process in all its extension, combining the primordial elements and the language of the myth. In the Quattrocento, the Humanist Giovanni Pontano (1429-1503) is inspired by this poetic exploration of ‘physical’ theories to portray a world responding to a generative logic. He associates, as his illustrious model, the power primordial elements, the force of the passions and the marvellous, according to a new causality whose poetic language becomes the privileged revelator.
