    The Bears’ Famous Invasion of Sicily by Dino Buzzati: A Fairy-Tale Novel Between Text and Original Drawings

    This article proposes a reflection on a tale that can be a bridge between “literature for children and teens” and “literature for adults”: The Bears’ Famous Invasion of Sicily by Dino Buzzati. It offers a link between fable and fantasy novel and contains all of the elements of the fairy tale that Vladimir Propp planned in 1928: loss, departure, challenges to overcome, reward, and return. It is closely connected to its historical reality (the period after the Second World War), but at the same time it detaches itself from that period through the fantastic element. In short, the book is a mirror of Buzzati’s literary personality and the first literary work of a restless but sensitive author who always felt linked to painting and writing, to adults and children, to reality and evasion.

    FICTIONAL TRANSFORMATIONS OF PIETRO DE’ NATALI’S (1330-1406) VITA SANCTI ALBANI IN GIOVANNI BATTISTA MORONI’S (D. 1645) PRINCIPE SANTO

    this article describes the rewriting process of Pietro de’ Natali’s Vita Sancti Albani in Giovanni Battista Moroni’s Principe Santo. through contextualising the experience among the canons of the 17th-century devotional novel and detecting the cultural and literary influences, this study explores the traits of the didactical project underpinned in the book, in which devotional purposes, moral meditations and political precepts are strongly intertwined. Finally, specific analyses are dedicated to the new geographical setting evoked in the novel, an ahistorical medieval Sarmatia (Poland); these examine the perception of a distant land and show the functional use of geographical elements to testify the historicity of an incredible story.
