Gli studi provenzali in Italia nel Cinquecento, di Santorre Debenedetti. Torino, Loescher, 1911, in 8vo., pp. 304.

Olivero, Frederico

Although Mussafia, Rajna, Crescini and De Lollis have made special contributions to the history of Provençal studies in Italy, there has been hitherto no work, analytic and synthetic at the same time, elucidating the thousand details of this theme, arranging them, estimating them for their individual worth, and putting them into relation with the culture of the age. There was lacking above ail a good history of the Provençal MSS. of Italy, dealing with that century when they were collected and preserved with such a great solicitude. This is the subject dealt with by Debenedetti in this volume.
