Con la propensione all'ascolto, originariamente determinata da un difetto visivo, don Marzio è il prototipo di quei frequentatori di caffè che sanno diquesto e di quello, che raccolgono notizie dalla voce degli altri e dallegazzette per farsene portavoce, senza la cura di controllarle e di verificarnela fondatezza, mescolando verità e invenzione. Nella bottega del caffè si ...more

Io amo Goldoni e queste commedie veneziane mi fanno morire dal ridere nonostante affrontino temi seri. La bravura dell'autore sta nel caratterizzare con precisione ogni personaggio, crea delle scene talmente reali che ti immagini proprio gli attori a teatro.
Anche se si parla della nuova moda che è arrivata dalle Nuove Indie, il tema che a me ha colpito di più è il tema del gioco, un problema molto più attuale di quello che si creda. E poi come non farsi rimanere antipatico quel Don Marzio e la s

I read this book as an assignment but was pleasantly surprised by its happy ending.
While reading I was annoyed with some characters but entertained by the misadventures recounted, quite funny and described concisely.
This is not what I expected from a book written during the enlightenment age but Goldoni does a great job illustrating the different characters' incidents with a simple vocabulary.
Having finished reading I'm happy I did so, all is well what ends well.

ACTUAL VOTE: 3.5

Commedia teatrale in tre atti, ambientata in una piazza di Venezia, su cui si affacciano un caffè, una bisca e un barbiere. Sembrano ambienti separati, ma è come se fossero un unico palco dove tutti i personaggi sono spettatori delle vite degli altri.
Tante incomprensioni, Don Marzio che ci mette lo zampino (e se la ride!) e chi deve aggiustare tutto è sempre Ridolfo, il caffettiere.
La trama è esilarante ed ironica, il linguaggio semplice e scorrevole.

Oh I loved this one. It was so sweet, funny, and cozy - I can even imagine a community like this existing in this very moment, just with other problems. I just loved the athmosphere of it. I adored the characters. I couldn't even hate the less nice characters, because they were so real and so silly. Ridolfo was a great character, the not too pretentious and flashy coffee shop owner, who may not know as much as others, but from what he knows, he makes great assumptions, and also, in the backgroun ...more

Wer sich wirklich einmal kit diesem Buch auseinandersetzt, merkt vielleicht etwas.Spielsucht wird als nichts schlimmes abgegolten. Die Richtung ist so falsch wie sonst etwas. Nur oberflächliches Geplänkel,.

neat, and really rather funny (no doubt outrageously back then). characters a great blend of traditional stock and individuality, in a plot driven by lust, money and marital indignation. good sharp translation.
