Description Both Eugenio Borgno and Ugo Foscolo have defined Inni alle Grazie as a poem about the arts. This not only because Foscolo’s Inni alle Grazie is about Antonio Canova’s sculptures and the art of English gardens, but also because it pertains landscape painting. Through the analysis of mentions to François-Xavier Fabre in some drafts of Silvani, and of references in Foscolo’s epistolary and introductory letters to his translations of Iliad to his direct knowing of paintings and decorations, my paper investigates the presence of figurative arts in Inni alle Grazie.
