Comedia Dell’ Arte is an Italian unwritten or improvised drama. The first recorded commedia dell'arte performances come from Rome as early as 1551. It often involved portrayals of disgraceful or silly love scenes. Clever tricks played on Gullible figures often to outwit them or gain their possessions.
Each male character has an opposite or rival. Each woman had someone they could confide in.
All roles were extremely specific and set to a specific theme or character.
The plays always try to evoke an array of emotions, often hilarity and intent to parody views or generalizations thought by the general populous.
