Giovan Baptista Biasi Basile, better known as Giambattista Basile, also signed with the pseudonym of Gian Alesio Abbatis (Naples, 4 February 1583 – Giugliano in Campania, 23 February 1632) was a man of letters, Italian writer and civil servant of the Baroque era, first to use the fairy tale as a form of popular expression.
Of his early years there is no news; when he reached his youth, he moved from his native country and wandered through Italy an unknown number of years. He enlisted as a mercenary soldier in the service of the Republic of Venice, moving between Venice and Candia (modern Crete). In this period, the environment of the Venetian colony of the island allowed him to attend a literary society, the Accademia degli Stravaganti, founded by Andrea Cornaro.
The first documents of his literary production date back to 1604, when he wrote some letters, as a preface to Vaiasseide, to his friend and Neapolitan scholar Giulio Cesare Cortese. The following year his villanella Smorza crudel amore was set to music. Returning to Naples in 1608, he published the poem Il pianto della Vergine. In 1611 he served at the court of Luigi Carafa, Prince of Stigliano, to whom he dedicated a play, Le avventurose disavventure.
Later, he followed his sister Adriana, famous singer of the time, to the court of Vincenzo Gonzaga in Mantua, becoming part of the Academy of Oziosis. He also edited the first edition of Galeazzo di Tarsia’s rhymes. In the Lombard city he had madrigals dedicated to his sister, odes, the Egloghe amorose e lugubri, the second revised and enlarged edition of Il pianto della Vergine and the drama in five acts La Venere addolorata.
Back in Naples, he was governor of various fiefs on behalf of some southern lords, including Avellino, Montemarano and Lagolibero.
In 1618 he published L’Aretusa, an idyll dedicated to Prince Marino II Caracciolo of Avellino and the following year a play in five acts Il guerriero amante.
Her sister Adriana became a famous singer who reached the primacy of singing in the peninsula, at the time when the figure of the virtuoso was imposed. Hadrian was known as “the mermaid of Posillipo” and was a lover of kings and various men of power. It was thanks to his good offices that his brother obtained an important political office from the Spanish viceroy.
Giambattista Basile died in Giugliano in Campania on 23 February 1632, after turning 49, and was buried in the church of Santa Sofia.
His main works came out posthumously: Le Muse napolitane, in 1635, and the masterpiece Lo cunto de li cunti, in the years 1634-1636, both under the pseudonym of Gian Alesio Abbatis.
