Abstract

[automatically translated] As destined to succumb under a blatant failure, the oration of Cicero pro Milone enjoys a great luck in seriore tradition. The contribution points out the reasons for this success and milestones 'a posteriori', paying particular importance to the work of Quintilian. In the Institutio oratoria, in fact, we are witnessing a full array of quotations of Cicero's text; They, however, appear to have used in all contexts of particular importance where the Flavian rhetorician is to the comment on the need for certain changes of argumentative strategy or even the financial viability of a multiple use of the doctrine of status, of which Cicero gives test in Tractatio extra causam, which occupies pp. 72-91 of prayer. The reception of the text is then followed in the works of some rhetoricians later, that pay special attention to aspects from time to time that are different but real textual emergencies, such as, among all, the wise use of Cicero evidentia in the reconstruction of the battle now between the two armed gangs along the Appian Way. Confirming then the luck of the long course he enjoyed the prayer is mentioned reuse who made it in the process of so-called Boston Massacre John Adams, a brilliant young lawyer, the future second president of the new Member States, but, above all, , as demonstrated by the reading of his memoirs, enthusiastic reader of Cicero and the pro Milone in particular. the wise use of Cicero evidentia in the reconstruction of the battle now between the two armed gangs along the Appian Way.
