The publication of the volume La Bibbia nella letteratura italiana. VI. Dalla Controriforma all’Età napoleonica, Brescia, Morcelliana, edited by me, has concluded the twenty year-long project about the sacred aspects of the Italian literature coordinated by Piero Gibellini. I joined in that research since its beginning with the study of the classical myth in the literature (6 volumes), investigating the connections between Montale’s poetry and the classical myth, and with the study of the sacred Scriptures (6 volumes), deepening the interpretation that Leopardi made of the Bible.
