[automatically translated] Selection and collection of essays by Francesco Luisi on the occasion of his sixty-five. The jubilee volume brings together the most original work on the music for the theater of the sixteenth century, according to user and gender distinctions. The author analyzes examples of music born for the stage or adapted for it, the placed as an intermediate between music acts and music in the form of songs included in the action with decorative or dramatic function. It also maintains the quality of sound events in relation to the genres of tragedy, comedy, pastoral fable and sacred representation. The second part concerns the study of musical allegories and performative aspects linked to images of frescoes and paintings from the same era that show examples of pages in polyphony.
