Carlo Goldoni, the great Venetian playwright, reformed the Italian theater. In his time, the reigning theatrical genres were the melodrama and the commedia dell'artecommedia dell'arte; the one stressing musicality, the other the antics of familiar "characters" who more often than not improvised their way through a skeletal script.
Carlo Osvaldo Goldoni (/ɡɒlˈdoʊni/, also US: /ɡɔːlˈ-, ɡoʊlˈ-/, Italian: ; 25 February 1707 – 6 February 1793) was an Italian playwright and librettist from the Republic of Venice. His works include some of Italy's most famous and best-loved plays. Audiences have admired the plays of Goldoni for their ingenious mix of wit and honesty.
Nel Campiello, commedia popolare e povera, scabra nei gesti e nel linguaggio, ambientata in una di quelle piazzette veneziane che sono in realtà il salotto e il luogo di incontri e scontri del popolino, Goldoni riafferma le sue qualità di grande realista e osservatore umanissimo, ma non certo bonario e lezioso, della vita e della società del suo tempo.
He was enamored of comedy from childhood, having sketched his first comic drama at eight. He took a degree in law at Padua but thereafter devoted himself to the theater. He created a new Italian character comedy, considered artistically superior to the old commedia dell'arte. This he achieved by building on the old comedy of masks, but amplifying written parts; by judicious imitation of Molière and adaptation of classical themes; and by applying his own excellent comedic sense.
