The paper aims to afford relationships between Juditha triumphans, the most famous oratorio by Antonio Vivaldi, and one of the last episodes of the history of the Serenissima Republic of Venice: the victorious resistance to the Turkish siege of Corfu in 1716 – the same year of the oratorio’s premiere. Concerning Juditha triumphans, the oratorio will be analyzed in order to consider the narrative strategies of Giacomo Cassetti’s libretto, as well as the rhetoric devices of the score, imagined by the composer who wanted to celebrate the victory in an allegoric way.

Concerning Juditha triumphans, the oratorio will be analyzed in order to consider the narrative strategies of Giacomo Cassetti’s libretto, as well as the rhetoric devices of the score, imagined by the composer who wanted to celebrate the victory in an allegoric way.
