A Great Variety of Morbid Symptoms

Description

Pantalone, or, Il Magnifico, is a stock character of the “Commedia dell’arte”, a popular, touring theater group originating in Renaissance Italy. The characters were fixed types having roughly standardized costumes. Either as a wealthy merchant or elected official, Pantalone is a boss, greedy and stingy, a vain old man, hungry for money, power, and women. Taken from a 17th century painting, Ajax, a hero in the Iliad, filled with shame and dishonor, takes his own life after having humiliated himself in front of his peers .
