A medical treatise of 1610 written by the South Tirolean physician Hippolytus Guarinonius include some three dozen descriptions of lazzi, or comic routines of the early modern professional Italian stage, ranging in length from a single phrase to several lengthy paragraphs. Collectively, they are of great theatre-historical significance, offering detailed insights into the presentation and structure of professional stage business, and a valuable aid to the interpretation of lazzi depicted in early modern images.
