Giulia Abbadessa


This article explores Pascal’s influence in Leopardi, grounded in his reading of
Pensées, which is testified by his Lists of Reading and by his philosophical notebook, the Zibaldone.

Finally, through philological and philosophical analysis, the article highlights the stylistic influence of Pascal on Leopardi.
