Description

To what extent has the Vocabolario degli Accademici della Crusca spearheaded the making of the Italian language across the centuries, and to what extent did it contribute to 'create' the Italian language? Centennials are not only occasions for celebrations, they also invite to reflect on new research findings and novel perspectives. The systematic comparison between the annotations and the critical remarks through time yields promising results for the history of the Vocabolario through its five editions.

A lecture sponsored by the Italian Specialization of the Comparative Literature Program at the CUNY Graduate Center and the Sonia Raiziss Giop Foundation.
