Abstract

The article shares the latest positions which consider that the Tesoretto was composed later than the Tresor and aims to highlight the different communicative intentions of the work in verse. The Tesoretto wanted to involve a wider lay public and contribute to their education; it uses therefore an engaging construction and language which emphasize, for didactic purposes, the narrative characters of the vision and the textual strategies. Nonetheless, the verse are characterized by a scientific and philosophical lexicon that in many cases had never been used before in the vernacular. Until then, in fact, the vernacular didactic poetry concentrated on religious themes, while the Tesoretto is also concerned with the physical composition of the world. With his poem Brunetto Latini founded a new genre and a new terminology, compensating in this way for the artistic incompleteness of this work.
