Angela Cirrincione – una vita dedicata all'albanologia


The contribution of Angela Cirrinicione in ethnolinguistics, folklore, anthropology, language and Albanian literature is little known today, despite the fact that she has been a pioneer in many fields of studies. From the study of Albanian traditional games for children, to the 'Albanian idiomatic imagery' whose corpus is based on the work of Fishta, the Kanun of Lekë Dukagjini, Prendushi and other authors from Shkodër, where she highlights the strong metaphorical expression of Albanian language, Cirrincione showed a strong interest in the culture of Northern part of Albania. The most important fact that should be attributed to her, as well as to other scholars who acted at the same period, would be the impact in diffusing and promoting the Albanian culture in Italy during the Enver Hoxha dictatorship.
