Abstract [it]

Nell'articolo è illustrata la conoscenza della lingua italiana in Svezia nella prima età moderna, con particolare riguardo al Seicento. Gli studi pregressi su questo argomento mostrano che l'Italiano era in questo periodo una delle lingue di cultura più importanti in Svezia. Per verificare questi studi si sono utilizzate le notizie di prima mano contenute in alcuni testi odeporici (lettere, diari, relazioni ecc.) redatti da viaggiatori italiani recatisi in Svezia in questo secolo. Nei primi paragrafi del lavoro il lettore è introdotto alla comprensione dell'argomento grazie ad una esposizione contestualizzata sia della storia della Svezia sia di quella della lingua italiana tra Cinquecento e Seicento. Inoltre si offre anche una veloce introduzione ai contatti culturali tra l'Italia e la Svezia fino al Seicento. L'analisi dei testi odeporici seicenteschi conferma gli studi precedenti, basati su ricerche bibliografiche e d'archivio, dimostrando come l'Italiano, sebbene materia di studio accademico e di apprendimento privato, fosse in realtà conosciuto in Svezia solo da una piccola parte dei nobili, preferendosi ad esso il Francese, mentre il latino era conosciuto bene da tutti i rappresentanti del clero.

Abstract [en]

This article discusses the knowledge of the Italian language in Sweden in the early modern period, with particular regard to the 17th century. Previous studies on this topic have stated that the Italian language was one of the culturally important languages in Sweden in this period. To verify these findings, the results has been compared to the first-hand sources contained in some odeporic texts (letters, diaries, reports, etc..) written by Italian travelers in Sweden in the 17th century. This article also introduces the reader to a contextualized overview of Swedish history as well as the history of the Italian language in the 16th and 17th centuries. In addition, the article also provides a quick introduction to cultural contacts between Italy and Sweden until the 17th century. The analysis of several 17th century odeporic texts confirms previous studies, based on literature and archives research, and shows how the Italian language, although it was an academic subject at the universities, was only known in Sweden by a small part of the nobility. The French language was preferred at the court, while Latin was well known by all the representatives of the clergy.
