Abstract
The main objective of this dissertation is to determine how Goldoni’s tragicomedy La dalmatina (1754) fits in the pre-Morlachist current of the Venetian literature of the eighteenth century, and to compare the portrayal of Dalmatians in this tragicomedy and other Goldoni’s plays with the portrayal of the Morlacchi in Alberto Fortis’s Viaggio in Dalmazia (1774). The research led me into two main directions. The first direction is a research of Morlachism. Here, I review the main features of proto-Morlachism to present the portrayal of Dalmatians in Venice prior to the publication of Fortis’s Viaggio, which initiates Morlachism. Then, I elaborate the portrayal of the Morlacchi in Fortis’s Viaggio to define the main features of their image that were going to inspire numerous poets and novelists in the next decades. The second direction of my research is dedicated to Goldoni’s portrayal of the exotic Other in general, and Dalmatians in particular. In order to determine particular features of the portrayal of Dalmatians in La dalmatina, I situate this tragicomedy within two contexts: firstly, within other Goldoni’s plays that deal with Dalmatians, and secondly, within other Goldoni’s plays of the same genre, i.e. his exotic tragicomedies written between 1754 and 1761.
