Carlo, Conte Gozzi
Apr 20, Madi rated it liked it. The story of the princess Turandot is dramatic and enigmatic, yet with an abrupt ending.
She is a Chinese princess who tozzi only marry the one that will guess three of her riddles. If they do not guess the riddles, then they will be beheaded. Despite her spectacular beauty everybody is terrified of Turandot, because her riddles are so hard and the gates of her castle are surrounded by the heads of men who did not prove themselves worthy enough.

Turandot, Princess of China: A Chinoiserie in Three Acts by Gozzi and Vollmöller
Born in Venice, he came from an old Venetian family from the Republic of Ragusa. His father’s debts forced him to look for a means of supporting himself, and at the age of sixteen, he joined the army in Dalmatia; three years later he returned to Venice, where he soon made a reputation for himself as the wittiest member Carlo, Count Gozzi 13 December — April 4, was an Italian playwright.
His father’s debts forced him to look for a means of supporting himself, and at the age of sixteen, he joined the army in Dalmatia; three years later he returned to Venice, where he soon made a reputation for himself as the wittiest member of the Granelleschi society, to which the publication of several satirical pieces had gained him admission.
This society, nominally devoted to conviviality and wit, had serious literary aims, and was especially zealous to preserve Tuscan literature from foreign influence. The displacement of the old Italian comedy by the dramas of Pietro Chiari and Carlo Goldoni’s works, modelled on French examples, threatened to defeat the society’s efforts; in Gozzi came to the rescue by publishing a satirical poem, La tartana degli tkrandot per l’annoand in by his comedy, The Love of Three Oranges or Turaandot riflessiva della fiaba L’amore delle tre melarance, a parody of the manner of the other two poets, founded tyrandot a fairy tale.
To perform it, he obtained the services of the Sacchi company of players, who, thanks to the popularity of the comedies of Chiari and Goldoni—which offered no scope for the display of their peculiar talents—had been left without employment.
Their satirical powers thus sharpened by personal enmity, the play was an extraordinary success. Struck by the effect produced on the audience by the introduction of the supernatural or mythical element, which he had merely used as a convenient medium for his satirical purposes, Gozzi produced a series of dramatic pieces based on fairy tales, which were briefly popular, but after the breaking up of the Sacchi company were completely disregarded.
In his later years Gozzi began to produce tragedies in which the comic element was largely introduced; as this innovation proved unacceptable to the critics he turned to the Spanish drama, from which he obtained models for various pieces; these had minor success.
