The Corpus established by d’Arco Silvio Avalle adopted a new edition of the 13th c. manuscripts containing Italian poetry. It was a conservative edition, for lexicographic purposes, and was among the first examples of computer-assisted philology. It is therefore a perfect case study in order to discuss textual criticism methods, and to compare those issues with the more recent developments of digital philology.
