Abstract
Sophonisba was a young Carthaginian girl who lived during the Second Punic War and whose vicissitudes were narrated by the historians Titus Livy, Apian and Polybius. Her unique experience, her patriotism, fortitude and her dignified and courageous acceptance of her early and tragic death made her the protagonist of numerous tragedies since the Renaissance. This article analyses the Italian tragedies centred on this character and the different treatment and interpretation given to her in each of the works.
