L. Dallapiccola's «Divertimento in quattro esercizi» was based on the texts from thirteenth-century secular Italian poetry. The verses are very diverse in terms of their character, expressive means, and poetic language; all of them are landmark pieces, each imbibing historical layers of artistic and cultural references. At the same time, the diverse texts have one thing in common: they all belong to the same cultural layer, which is more or less rooted in folk art. Their diversity is therefore a personification of the various aspects of the Italian spirit and soul, represented by their deepest (oldest) layers.
