In her contribution &#8220;Tirant e il paradosso del Cavaliere inesistente&#8221; Roberta Capelli analyzes the third chapter of Italo Calvino&#8217;s heraldic trilogy Our Ancestors, The Nonexistent Knight (1959), from the perspective of the book profile Calvino drew of the late-15th-century Catalan novel written by Joanot Martorell, Tirant lo Blanch, published in the catalogue of the exhibition Tesoros de Espa&#241;a. Ten Centuries of Spanish Books, held at the New York Public Library in 1985, and later gathered in his posthumous collection of essays Perch&#233; leggere i classici (1991). Capelli postulates that Calvino&#8217;s catalogue record raises some interesting issues of literary criticism with respect to the ideology of the libros de caballer&#237;as and the critique of Martorell&#8217;s novel that Cervantes invokes at the beginning of his Quijote.
