  • Laura Rossi,

This book is a collection of some of the most interesting work by Maria Di Salvo compiled on the occasion of her sixty-fifth birthday. These articles reflect her intellectual curiosity, her clarity of exposition and the capacity to apply and amalgamate different methodologies and disciplines, blending them into a coherent whole despite the variety of topics and subjects of study. We have favoured the essays that are harder to get hold of, making selections that enable the identification of two essential groups: the philological and literary studies and those related to the relations between Russia and Italy. We trust that the choices made will offer an organic overview of the intellectual and academic career of Maria Di Salvo, including the latest 'new path' of research, that on punctuation in the Slavic languages, and while awaiting the imminent publication by Edizioni dell'Orso, of the part devoted to Russia in the memoirs of Filippo Balatri, the famous castrato sent by the Grand Duke of Tuscany to the Russian court at the end of the seventeenth century.

Maria Di Salvo was associate professor at the Universities of Genoa and Pavia, full professor at the University of Pisa and, since 1989 at the State University of Milan where she now concludes her academic career. With the natural aplomb of those with a superb mastery of vast reaches of Slavic knowledge and humanistic culture in general, she has taught Old Church Slavonic and Slavonic linguistics, Russian and Polish diachronic and synchronic linguistics, Russian eighteenth-century literature and that of the Golden and Silver Ages and the history of Russian, Polish and southern Slavonic languages. Her academic interests range from linguistics to Slavonic literary theory and philology. The focus of her attention has been the relations between Russians and Italians in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, always considered in the broader European context and rendered particularly original by her passion for archive research.
