Ai tempi della pubblicazione avvenuta nel 1558 e nei secoli successivi il Galateo di Giovanni Della Casa appariva come un trattato comportamentale il cui messaggio di fondo era un conformismo smodato verso i dettami della societ di fine Cinquecento L autore veste i panni di un precettore che vuole educare un giovane alle buone maniere, spiegando cosa sia lecito non fare per conquistare una reputazione rispettabile Oggi alla luce di recenti studi e in un ottica moderna il Galateo appar Ai tempi della pubblicazione avvenuta nel 1558 e nei secoli successivi il Galateo di Giovanni Della Casa appariva come un trattato comportamentale il cui messaggio di fondo era un conformismo smodato verso i dettami della societ di fine Cinquecento L autore veste i panni di un precettore che vuole educare un giovane alle buone maniere, spiegando cosa sia lecito non fare per conquistare una reputazione rispettabile Oggi alla luce di recenti studi e in un ottica moderna il Galateo appare permeato da una pungente ironia che anima l intera opera e che ci induce a riflettere sui contenuti Se in passato Della Casa fu reputato pedante e succube del suo tempo era, inoltre, un ecclesiastico , oggi potrebbe essere considerato un sovversivo e il suo Galateo alleggerito dalla sua caratterizzazione prescrittiva potrebbe fungere da monito per ricostruire, nella nostra quotidianit , un etica e un educazione che sembra essere oramai fuori moda ancora forte l influsso delle teorie di Pietro Bembo Galateo was a bit of an afterthought Written by Giovanni Della Casa near the end of a life of democracy and scholarly pursuit, it was designed as advice for his nephew and published posthumously It became a bestseller around the world and spread ideas of politeness.What makes the book great is that it s not a particularly polite book M.F Rusnak translates it into a very jocular text, not afraid to use sharp or impolite language to call out the impoliteness of others At one point he describes Galateo was a bit of an afterthought Written by Giovanni Della Casa near the end of a life of democracy and scholarly pursuit, it was designed as advice for his nephew and published posthumously It became a bestseller around the world and spread ideas of politeness.What makes the book great is that it s not a particularly polite book M.F Rusnak translates it into a very jocular text, not afraid to use sharp or impolite language to call out the impoliteness of others At one point he describes people yearning to speak and missing the point like a dog in eagerness missing a hare It s a grouch s book, and a very entertaining one at that.Once of the things I found most interesting was to apply the lessons of Galateo into modern culture No man should boast of his intelligence says Della Casa someone should tell the denizens of Twitter The section in chapter 11 about how tedious it is hearing stories of the hilarious things their children say should apply to Facebook The admonishment that drinking is not an accomplishment could be given to anyone describing their crazy night out.The chapters on jokes may also be useful to those navigating the modern web The reminder that if people aren t laughing, maybe it is because the teller isn t funny would apply to a great many Youtube channels The reminder that wit should have the bite of a sheep rather than a dg may also help some of those people who think being nasty and funny are the same thing.Politeness has a bad name now, it s seen as a thin veneer on people s true thoughts but I think it really does have a place That empty politeness is recognised by Della Casa as like a rotten fruit but the true politeness of thinking of others and fitting out mode to a situation seem like perfectly useful concepts On less solid ground are the moments when he recommends doing what everyone else is because they are doing it Do what is done, not what should be done for it is better to blunder with others then be good by yourself That could be the route to some unpleasant results I think.That besides, we are living in such an argumentative world now, with people going out of their way to offend and others to be offended A littlesocial polish can t be a bad thing in such times.And remember, laugh out of need, not habit Il libro insegna l arte della modestia, del controllo di s e forse del conformismo che se per assunto in piccole dosi consente di connettersi con i nostri coevi come mettersi d accordo sulle basi della grammatica per poter parlare di idee, fatti e sentimenti, un suolo livellato per poterci camminare sopra.
