THEATRUM. Centro e Periferie. Andare a teatro a Roma nel I sec. a.C.

Riflessioni sulle Giornate di studio Centro e Periferie. Andare a teatro a Roma nel I sec. a.C.
di Elisabetta Matelli pagine: 18 € 6,00
The paper offers a summary of the two days’ work 7 and 8 November 2019 on the theme ‘going to theater in Rome in the first century B.C.’, about the epochal socio-political transformations that have  changed dramatic genres, performing art, theatrical structures and collective sensitivity towards the theater in the Capital, influencing the peripheries. The combination of different disciplinary approaches  (archaeology and history of theatrical architecture, history of literature, history of performative arts and genres, political history of Rome during the civil wars and the beginning pf the Principate; history of Roman culture between conservatism and innovation) allows us to arrive at a more varied and complete synthetic framework than those already available.
Luoghi del teatro a Roma nel I sec. a.C.
di Hans Peter Isler pagine: 10 € 6,00
Discussion of the written sources concerning the theatrical constructions in the city of Rome during the Republic and the reign of Augustus.
Il teatro delle virtù. Pathos ed ethos sulla scena tragica nella testimonianza di Cicerone
di Giuseppe Aricò pagine: 25 € 6,00
This contribution focuses on the reception of the Roman tragedy of the archaic age, as can be retrieved from Cicero’s testimony, based on the attendance of theatrical representations and stimulated by  the contiguity between the dramatic performance and that of the orator (as often emphasized by Cicero himself ), with regard, in particular, to vocal and gestural language and to the role played by pathos for the purpose of capturing the audience. After a quick synthesis on the innovations introduced by Cicero in rhetorical theory in relation to these aspects, an anthology of passages illustrates the  dramatic techniques adopted by the actors, the use of dramatic representations for political purposes, and the different responses of the audience to the ethical and emotional solicitations produced by the texts performed on stage.
Cadere in tempus nostrum. Cicerone, il teatro e le interferenze dell’attualità
di Gianna Petrone pagine: 17 € 6,00
In the pro Sestio Cicero documents the complex relationship of the Latin theater of the first century BC with the ‘evenemential’ reality. In fact, he describes the rituals of collective presence, the whistles  and the applause, that is, those significationes, which manifest the will of public opinion. But Cicero, through the story of the theatrical day of 57 BC, makes us understand how the practice of actualizing dramatic texts was a usual way. Roman spectators were ready to grasp in the theatrical communication those topics that seemed to cadere in tempus. An important fact to understand a theatrical  reception that passed through a ‘Romanization’ and that in otherness could find its identity and even the present.
Un distico in memoria di Gneo Lucceio, autore di commedie Atellane
di Enzo Puglia pagine: 10 € 6,00
An epigraph from Cuma but nowadays lost commemorates Gnaeus Lucceius, author of Atellan comedies and exodia similar to those of Lucius Pomponius. The identification of two iambic senari into the  inscription allows to better understand the life and the work of this poet, who was probably a member of the affluent and prestigious family of the Luccei of Cuma in the 1st century BC.
Il teatro comico di I secolo a.C. tra innovazione e tradizione
di Salvatore Monda pagine: 12 € 6,00
In this paper I aim to propose some reflections on the developments and transformations of Latin comic theatre during the first century BC, a period characterised, as we know, by an evident decline of  the comoedia palliata and during which the public’s preferences are directed towards the togata and those comic genres that draw inspiration from the popular Greek and Italic tradition, such as mime and Atellanfarce, but that develop new forms with respect to their origins.
Il fenomeno del revival nella tragedia repubblicana
di Marco Filippi pagine: 29 € 6,00
The article analyzes the testimonies regarding the revival phenomenon in Republican tragedy. Based upon an outline given as a starting point, in which a Republican tragedy may be distinguished from an  Augustan matrix, it discusses socio-political reasons, which have led to the various cultural changings in between 2nd and 1st centuries BC, and specifically the transformation of the theater perception by  the public and by the same playwrights. Therefore it examines sources that give information on Republican period tragedians and which are the object of the revival.
Spettacoli popolari a Roma dalla tarda repubblica alla prima età imperiale
di Gennaro Tedeschi pagine: 32 € 6,00
The aim of the present contribute is to provide an outline of the theatralical forms in Rome during the first century BC, collecting literary texts with contemporary archaeological sources, epigraphic documents and papyri. The data are framed in the social context in which the traditional forms of theatre – tragedy and comedy – and other entertaining shows, such as pantomime and mime have developed.
Geopolitica e cultura teatrale a Roma alla metà del I secolo a.C.
di Giuseppe Zecchini pagine: 8 € 6,00
This paper aims to investigate the relationship between Sulla and people of the stage, the evolution of luxuria concept in the generation after Sulla particularly focusing on Lucullus and at last the possible  link between the conquest of the Hellenistic East accomplished by Pompey and the building of a permanent theatre in 55 BC.

FORUM. Repenser la religion à Rome: crise de la République et représentation des dieux

di Alessandra Rolle pagine: 8 € 6,00
Introduction to the Proceedings of the Conference ‘Rethinking Religion in Rome: Crisis of the Republic and Representation of Gods’.
Varro’s Tripartite Theology and Ciceronian Invective in 56 BC
di Anthony Corbeill pagine: 17 € 6,00
In spring of 56 BC Cicero delivered a speech before the senate in which he attempted to prove that a recent earthquake prodigy arose as a result of the actions of his political opponent, Publius Clodius.  Cicero employs evidence that resembles Varro’s three different ways of treating the divine: the mythic, the civic, and the philosophical. This essay examines the intersections between Cicero’s tactics and  the so-called ‘tripartite theology’ of Varro.
Cicerone, Clodio, gli auspicia e la lotta politica
di Luca Fezzi pagine: 19 € 6,00
The use of the auspicia was an extraordinary instrument of political struggle in Cicero’s Rome; for this reason it was the object of numerous attentions, such as those, entirely theoretical, of Cicero, and  that, much more practical, of his enemy Clodius.
Sapientiae vacare et guerre civile: le rôle de Vacuna/Victoria dans le 1er livre des Antiquités Divines
di Alessandra Rolle pagine: 20 € 6,00
My contribution aims to offer a new reading of fr. 1 Cardauns from Varro’s Divine Antiquities. In this fragment the association of the Sabin goddess Vacuna with Victoria can be linked to the dedication of  the work to Caesar and to the political context of the Civil War. The etymological explanation of this interpretatio, in turn, sheds light on the philosophical character of the passage. In fr. 1 Cardauns,  religion, philosophy, and politics ultimately constitute a compact whole, where each element supports and legitimates the others.
Virgil’s Divine Antiquities: Varro in the Aeneid
di Fiachra Mac Góráin pagine: 24 € 6,00
Virgil reflects knowledge of Varro’s Divine Antiquities (Antiquitates rerum divinarum) in the Aeneid. Virgil responded to and transformed Varronian material, and  related it to his Homeric framework and  the other literary traditions that he used. This article gives an overview of the relations between the Aeneid and Varro’s Divine Antiquities, covering the following topics: antiquarianism in the Aeneid;  antiquarian prequels between myth and history; the politics of antiquarianism; the Varronian and Samothracian origins of Virgil’s penates; and the Aeneid’s tripartite theology.
Orazio e l’irrazionale: dèi e divinità nel vate augusteo
di Andrea Cucchiarelli pagine: 21 € 6,00
Horace is commonly considered to be close to Epicurean thought and, therefore, skeptical when it comes to the ultimate validity of traditional religion. However, a more thorough investigation of Horace’s  philosophical education, in relation to the distinction between hexametrical sermo and lyrical carmen as literary forms, allows us to observe the actual presence of the ‘irrational’ and the divine in Horace.  In building his lyrical architecture, Horace reveals that he regards divine figures as structural points of reference, whose description follows a precise ritual pattern.


Pudore proiecto tua facta loquar. La comunicazione reticente delle eroine pudibundae di Ovidio
di Alice Bonandini pagine: 23 € 6,00
In Ovid’s mythological poetry, the rare adjective pudibundus defines some female characters (first of all, Philomela; but also Lucretia, Echo and the incestuous heroines: Canace, Byblis and Myrrha)  characterized by the impossibility, or difficulty, of speaking. The article inspects the narrative and rhetorical patterns that stress such impossibility, by creating a true rhetoric of reticence that discloses the  narrow link between pudor and the loss of speech.
Un frammento di Varrone in Solino
di Rosanna Cioffi pagine: 5 € 6,00
This paper deals with a passage from Solinus normally attributed to M. Varro and offers a new editorial solution.
La mano correttrice B3 nel codice Palatino Latino 1615 (Città del Vaticano, Biblioteca Apostolica): Asinaria di Plauto
di Roberto M. Danese pagine: 22 € 6,00
The medieval reviewer (B3) of the codex B (Città del Vaticano, Biblioteca Apostolica, Pal. lat. 1615; Plautus) has made interesting corrections, especially in the first eight Plautus’ comedies. This essay is  part of a larger project aiming to study the work of B3. In this paper, we investigate the various interventions of B3 in Plautus’ Asinaria. This research project will be useful for every philological study to  Plautus’ comedies and to the medieval approach to classical texts.
Nonio Marcello e il fr. 447 B. della satira Quinquatrus di Varrone: osservazioni per una nuova proposta di ricostruzione del testo
di Martina Farese pagine: 13 € 6,00
The paper focuses on frg. 447 B. of Varro’s satire Quinquatrus and on its testimony, a lemma (p. 340, 13-14 Lindsay) in Nonius Marcellus’ De compendiosa doctrina, suggesting a new textual arrangement for the passage and advancing some hexegetical reflections for the interpretation of both the fragment and the satire on the whole.
Dall’epica al romanzo. Achille Tazio e l’Iliade
di Luca Graverini pagine: 19 € 6,00
Achilles Tatius’ Leukippe and Kleitophon quotes Homer less frequently than other Greek novels, but it often refers to the epic tradition in a subtle and sophisticated way. A few intertexts suggest that  gender issues (such as role exchanges between men and women) and cultural mediations (other texts, literary genres, or figurative arts providing a bridge between epic and the novel) are important  elements in the evolution of an epic hero into a novelistic character. Parallels with the Homeric scholia show that Achilles Tatius’ writing style can combine learning and humour, two of the most important features of the ‘heroism’ of some of his characters.
Due note a Ovidio
di Giovanni Zago pagine: 5 € 6,00
Critical notes on two passages of Ovid (epist. 1, 29; rem. 23-26).
