Format: Paperback
If one is interested in the Commedia Dell Arte, buy this book. It includes a history, a disscussion of performance method, and a chapter for each of the basic stock characters and their family. Ducharte includes a collection of engravings detailing commedia work. A must. The only thing it lacks is a detailed description of traditional Lazzi.

I am so pleased to have found this excellent book on Commedia Dell'Arte! We provide authentic Italian masks for performers, students and collectors all over the world and are frequently asked for more information. We highly recommend this comprehensive work by Duchartre, and will refer inquiries to Amazon for purchase now that we have located a source for the book. We invite you to visit us at [...] where you will find all the characters from The Italian Comedy brought to life.

There is not much written about Italian Comedy and if you are searching for a book that is useful in this genre this is the most complete and useful book.
