An ingenious forerunner of modern comedy, Plautus was born in Sarsina, a small and lively town now part of Emilia-Romagna. His originality lies in the extraordinary expressive power of his lively and flamboyant dialogue, which he borrows from common people and best interprets in his plays. The special richness of a language finely combining farce and wit is also part of his great originality.
