Travestimenti autobiografici scarpettiani: metodologie di verifica
MetadataShow full item record
This essay critically examines the autobiography of Eduardo Scarpetta, problematizing the idea of the author’s memoir as an authentic confession. Analysing several declarations written by Scarpetta, the study shows how they do not constitute an accurate representation of reality. The main topics addressed in this paper are: the way Scarpetta claims his role as a playwright; the relationship with his son Vincenzo, who he designed as an heir to his theatre legacy; the conflict between Scarpetta’s working method as a dramatist and the first copyright issues which were emerging in Italy during the last years of his acting career.
