  • Unn Irene Aasdalen
Three philosophical commentaries in Italian are discussed, all written in Florence in the latter part of the 15th century. The theme is the debate on love and how to love rightly which was ignited by Marsilio Ficino's reworking of Plato's Symposium, composed in Latin in 1469 and adapted into Italian in 1474. Two rival commentaries are considered, Giovanni Pico della Mirandola's Commento from 1486 and Lorenzo dei Medici's Comento (of uncertain date), a prosimetrum glossing his own poetry in the style of the stilnovisti.
