Abstract

Reviews some three dozen descriptions of lazzi, or comic professional Italian stage routines described in a medical treatise of 1610 written by the South Tirolean physician Hippolytus Guarinonius. Examines the information they offer, and the limitations of using it as historical evidence for stage practice.
