The sixteen contributions which make up this volume are representative
of the research currently carried out in Italy on Italian and, more
generally, Romance syntax (in the generative tradition). The essays
were specially collected to pay homage to Professor Lorenzo Renzi, a
scholar who has since the 1960s promoted and shaped the study of
Italian syntax in Italy, both through his own work and through a
collective enterprise which culminated in the publication of the
Grande Grammatica Italiana di Consultazione (3 vol., Bologna, Il
Mulino, 1988-1995). Most of the contributors to this volume were
engaged in that enterprise as young, unemployed linguists, and are now
among the most prominent specialists in the field of Italian syntax.
For syntacticians, Romance linguists, and especially students of the
Italian language.
