Nafissa [manuscript].
Abstract:
Apparently unpublished libretto to an Italian pastoral oratorio to be sung by a cast of three singers: the shepherdess Nafissa, her lover Tifo, and Apollo. The author of this "poetical effort" (lo sforzo poetico, f. 2r) was an Abbate G. P. who had chosen the typically frightening name "the Poisoned" (Invelenato) as a member of the "Academy of the Bedeviled" (indiavolati).
