Abstract

SUMMARYWhereas in other countries in which historical linguistics struck root in the past century it became customary, particularly after 1870, to cultivate Romance and Indo-European studies as two separate, exacting disciplines which few specialists would want to bridge, Italy - initially under the impulse of Graziadio Isaia Ascoli — went her own way, allowing, above all, her 'glottologi' and, on a minor scale, her 'filologi' to participate actively in research conducted in both domains, with Latin serving as the obvious connection. Giacomo Devoto was the last major embodiment of this dual expertise; but many other names come to mind as well.RÉSUMÉOn sait qu'avant 1870 il n'était pas exceptionnel en Europe qu'un seul savant cultivât les deux domaines voisins des études romanes et des recherches indoeuropéennes; mais ce fut seulement en Italie — à n'en pas douter, grâce à l'initiative de Graziadio Isaia Ascoli - que cette belle tradition a survécu jusqu'à nos jours. Il est peut-être loisible de regarder feu Giacomo Devoto comme la dernière incarnation parfaite de cette double expertise; mais rien ne nous empêche de citer plusieurs autres noms du cöté des 'glottologues' ainsi que, à un degré plus modeste, de celui des 'philologues' italiens.
