Carlo Goldini peoples his stage with a series of flawed characters and seems to suggest, in doing so, that we are all flawed and should therefore pay attention.

Il ventaglio / Carlo Goldoni – Details – Trove

The setting is small village outside of Milan with a classic, pre-industrial social hierarchy complete with “A Count,” gentlemen, gentleladies, artisans, laborers, and ne’er-do-wells. The Fan its “The Fan’ is old-time, picaresque stuff, with the characters stepping from real-time to explain the meaning of their actions to the audience.


The Fan itself appears first as a gift of affection from the well-intentioned Evaristo to a young maiden, but is set afloat and into the hands of different characters. The fan’s purpose and value are repeatedly altered as it changes possession as the characters mostly misread those values and the intentions behind its being giving or stolen.

In the end, it seems to this reader, the station of each in the village society is enhanced or depleted by personal traits so that the well-born or well-heeled fair about the same as their purported lessers.

No doubt it is the best example of the play meant to be presented purely in the stage medium, given its frequent asides and breaking of the fourth wall. An incredible Venetian comedy.
