Aby Warburg e il dramma barocco

Claudia Cieri Via


Analogies, contaminations and  assonances between certain aspects of the thought of Aby Warburg and Walter Benjamin are still at the center of the contemporary theoretical debate. In the absence of tangible and documented exchanges, the similarities between the two scholars can be found in the structure of their most original and significant works, the Atlas of Memory and the Passagen-Werk, and in the adoption of the fragment as a conceptual language. Of particular interest is the reflection on baroque which, for  both scholars, involves the relation with the ancient tragedy and the modern drama.


Warburg; Benjamin; Passagen-Werk; Mnemosyne.
