Self-Translations: Writing Bilingually in Italy during the Sixteenth Century
The 16th century in Italy can be studied as a multilingual scenario because of the significant coexistence of Latin and vernaculars and the attempts to create a national language based on different literary theories. My research investigates the role that self-translations played within the questione della lingua. This literary practice embodied the possibility of writing bilingually and represented the coexistence of a culture based on the Romans’ language and one expressed in the vernacular. My thesis specifically focuses on examples and forms of self-translation activity in Renaissance Italy to prove that this phenomenon was tightly connected to the ongoing language debates.
