YEAR: 1773: presumed date of publication.

Italian translation of De Venise: Remarques sur la musique & la danse, ou Lettres de Mr. G... à Milord Pembroke (see).

The translator writes he has omitted "many critical remarks found in the original, which concerned the personal matters of people and not theater" (p. 4). The cuts are mostly found in the first letter, on music. The modifications to the second letter, on dance, include the addition of a passage in praise of "Mrs. Viganò," probably Elisabetta Viganò, the first ballerina in the perfomances staged by Angiolini in Milan in 1773.
