Alberti 1996: 259] translation Henke). But such range is to be expected in the scenario form, hovering between orality and writing and beyond the reach of normative literary canons. As part of the greater Italian humanist experiment of reviving classical comedy, Commedia dell’Arte scenario plots animate the generational conflict of New Comedy between father and child, mediated by the slave/servant. But much as with the Commedia Erudita the New Comedy framework is significantly fleshed out by two pairs of lovers embodying a full range of passionate actions and speeches unknown to Plautus or Terence but very familiar to Ariosto, Della Porta, or the collaborative authors of Gl’ingannati, the prototype for Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

Visibly, it is the power that compels others to act submissively toward the sovereign, whereas invisible power enables the sovereign to act powerfully. The crown and scepter visibly give a king his social aura, but it is the invisible self-knowledge that divine blood runs in his veins that enables him to act royally. The visible and the invisible are formed by systems of images and signs that structure internal and external meaning. Moreover, such systems structure perception itself. Pantalone, for instance, can only see the world mediated by money; everything has its price, whereas Dottore subsumes the world into forms of esoteric knowledge, as Capitano understands the world as a perpetual contest of strength.

The tripartite status level could generate six different kinds of interactive modules (vecchio-vecchio, innamorati-innamorati, servi-servi, vecchio-innamorato, vecchioservo, and innamorato-servo), with, of course, additional permutations based on gender (an innamorato’s cajoling of his servant Pedrolino in order to get him to do something would be different from his rhetorical strategy with Franceschina).
