This talk explores the magical world of GIambattista Basile’s Cunto de li cunti (1634-36), focusing in particular on the relations between humans and non humans in the text. Cats, mice, fleas and many others coexist with monsters, devils and strange humans, pushing the boundaries that could separate them.
