Lorenzo Bartoloni

Allievo del Corso di Perfezionamento/PhD

Italian Studies and Modern Philology


Lorenzo Bartoloni studied at the University of Pisa, where he obtained a three-year degree in Lettere in 2018 and a master’s degree in Italianistica in 2020. In the same period, he has been a student of the Classe di Lettere e Filosofia of the Scuola Normale Superiore, where he currently is a PhD student specializing in Italianistica e filologia moderna (XXXVI cycle).

His doctoral project consists in the study of Umberto Saba’s sonnet, with particular attention to the rhyme schemes, and in the search for some possible models, Italian and otherwise, of its rarest metrical choices.

His main field of interest is Italian poetry, with particular attention to metrical and stylistic aspects: he has mainly studied the poetry of the Middle Ages (the Sicilian poetic school, Dante) and contemporary poetry (Saba), also dealing with some examples of revival of medieval forms and images in the second half of the 20th century, both in institutional culture (Giudici, Valduga) and in pop culture (L’Inferno di Topolino).
