"The digital edition of Giorgio Bassani's notes"


Note is a particular type of textuality: it’s a text that is strictly connected to another text (a printed text or a manuscript), which is underlined, glossed and explained. Making the critical edition of notes philologists need to analyse how texts are linked together: an important issue, because trying to represent notes and the related text philologists face some difficulties. Besides, notes aren’t only textual annotation, but also underscores, brackets and other marks that a critical edition could partially represent, producing a loss of information.

The annotations written by Giorgio Bassani in the margins of his books are an interesting case study. Starting from difficulties that the philologist faces in editing Bassani’s notes, the contribution will explain why we have decided to create a digital edition of notes marked by the author in a very important book, "La scuola dell’uomo" by Guido Calogero (Firenze, Sansoni, 1939). We will compare traditional representation of notes and the digital one, analysing methods, models and tools.
