The aim of this article is to make a comparison between Ovid’s Amores and Savioli’s Amori, only partially started but not thoroughly examined, with method and investigation of a specifically thematic nature. To this end, we have started with the identification of the Bolognese cultural and literary framework in the second half of the 18th century, highlighting the abandonment of the Petrarch model and the revaluation of the Latin elegiac tradition and, in particular, Ovid’s one. We went on to illustrate the arrival of Savioli to the Ovidian elegies and his attempts to translate and adapt them to his times. In the face of the aforementioned comparison, we have noted an extraordinary Saviolian capability to adapt his line of thought to that of Ovid, with a unique refinement, grace and musicality.

Abstract

The aim of this article is to make a comparison between Ovid’s Amores and Savioli’s Amori, only partially started but not thoroughly examined, with method and investigation of a specifically thematic nature. To this end, we have started with the identification of the Bolognese cultural and literary framework in the second half of the 18th century, highlighting the abandonment of the Petrarch model and the revaluation of the Latin elegiac tradition and, in particular, Ovid’s one. We went on to illustrate the arrival of Savioli to the Ovidian elegies and his attempts to translate and adapt them to his times. In the face of the aforementioned comparison, we have noted an extraordinary Saviolian capability to adapt his line of thought to that of Ovid, with a unique refinement, grace and musicality.
