Retired Professor Martino Iuvara has written a book supplying (giving = fornendo) evidences (=prove) that William Shakespeare came from
. He was born in Sicily in 1564, the son of Dr. Florio and Guglielma Crollalanza, a family persecuted by the Catholic Church because of their Calvinist ideas. They left Messina Messina, at that time under the Spanish crown (=corona), and moved to Treviso, near . There they settled (established = si stabilirono) into a house built by a Venetian mercenary moor, Otello, who had killed his wife out of jealousy. Michelangelo first studied in Venice Venice, Padua, Mantua, then he travelled all through (=per tutta) Greece, Spain and Austria before reaching . There he went to live with a host, probably William’s mother relative who had lost a son, William. The man started calling Michelangelo William. The future playwright translated and then adopted his mother’s surname, Crollalancia, as his own surname Shake-the-Spear or Shakespeare. His wife was Anna Hathaway, known to be a very talented ( very good= di talento) translator. England
This theory could explain many obscure aspects of Shakespeare’s legendary life.
had already got a remarkable theatrical tradition and was already famous for theatrical operas and sceneries…and Shakespeare was an expert and an innovator. He was familiar with ships and rules of the navy…and now we know he travelled a lot. He had a deep knowledge of Sicily , its history and tradition …. and many of his works take place in Italy (including Romeo and Juliet; Othello, The two Gentlemen of Verona, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Taming of the Screw, Measure for Measure, Julius Caesar, A Winter’s Tale, The Tempest, his last work). Just the comedy “troppu trafficu pì nnenti”, written in Messinese dialect appeared 50 years after in Italy England with the title Much about nothing.
