A FEW SENTENCES ABOUT YOURSELF: "This theatrical tale, which I found in the Neapolitan set Il cunto degli cunti, was rewritten in the form of an old tragedy, incorporating my cheerful, talented masks, which I wanted to preserve for the sake of the people with melancholy, performed a great miracle. The audience was crying and laughing as I wished, and the crowds watched the performances of this tale as if it were not fiction, but the real truth." (Carlo Gozzi)
