The essay inquires the exercise of Leopardi’s dedications and the sophisticate use that a writer so conscious of the tradition and also innovative makes of a genre highly codified like the dedication, showing the extraordinary exegetic importance of such approach on an exemplar case. It is about texts in the most complex meaning of the term, where lexical and stylistic choices, word position and argumentative construction, take to the extreme the potentialities of expression which are allowed by a rigid form and by a very restricted lexicon. The number is little: about twenty, included those one childish, which are the prevalent ones, and those signed with his brothers. The compactness in the first years is a sign of an ambivalent relationship, with progressive separation (parallel to the ideological distance from the familial upbringing) and passage from a variegated experimentation (prose, epistolary, different forms and languages) to a notable homogeneity (prose, epistolary, Italian): a selective and anomalous choice as regards to the general tendency after 1815. The wideness of an almost unexplored field has led to divide the research in three parts: after the first one, concerning the childhood and the adolescence (1808-1815), the second and the third one concerning the youth and the adulthood (1815-1831) will come out in the next issues.
