The first still extremely general idea of this work came to Giovanni Carlotti, who, supported by Luca Biagiotti, is mainly responsible for exciting enthusiasm firstly in me, then in my students of the course of History of English Drama and Theatre (2000-2001).
This hypertext is dedicated to them, real collaborators towards the completion of a research already begun, but which would have never come to its conclusion without them.

Carla Dente, Giovanni Carlotti and Elisabetta Cori intend to include here (in Kemble 1807 section) some of the texts elaborated and the materials collected together with the students in the academic year’s work.
