Lupo Buonazia a proposito del teatro di Mārūn al-Naqqāš

(Lupo Buonazia on the theatre of Mārūn al-Naqqāš)

in La rivista di Arablit, a. I, n. 2, dicembre 2011, pp. 75-87.

Lupo Buonazia taught Arabic in Naples from 1878 until 1914, the year of his death. His main concerns were linguistics, metrics and dialect.  The “Maurizio Taddei Library” at the University of Naples “L’Orientale” preserves some of his handwritten notes on the Lebanese playwright Mārūn al-Naqqāš.  Buonazia offers interesting considerations about this Arab dramatist’s work; and he is most likely the first Arabic scholar to have written about him in Italy and perhaps even in the West on the whole.
