  • Mattia Caponi Università di Roma Sapienza




Franca Mancinelli, Mala kruna, Pasta madre, intertextuality, literary rewriting, structure, variants


The paper analyses the first three works published by Franca Mancinelli, outlining their thematic continuities as well as their foundational unity. By studying the chronological progress of specific themes, the article sheds a new light on the intertextual connections that can be found both within a single book as well as across the three works. The study of these links has the purpose of showing the singular structure as well as the formational dynamics at the basis of a poetic work by Mancinelli. With particular attention towards the declarations of a poetics by the author as well as the variants within the microtexts, the objective of the paper is to define the intentions behind the production of new poetic and prose versions of the author’s texts.  The process of rewriting finds its explanation through a thematic, stylistic and structural perspective, ultimately identifying a distinctive feature of Mancinelli’s style.
