Although Goya's Caprichos (1799) have been thoroughly studied, the influence of the Tiepolos on their thematic choices has seldom been acknowledged, if not ignored. This paper deals with some unexamined aspects regarding the relation between the imagery of the Caprichos of Francisco Goya (1746-1828) and that of the Divertimenti per li Regazzi (1797-99) of Domenico Tiepolo (1727-1804) —son of the famous Venetian painter, Giambattista Tiepolo (1692-1770). Through the inherently fascinating carnival figure of Pulcinella, Domenico Tiepolo offers an insight into the artistic values which the histrionic manifestations of life might have, while Goya unfolds the ambivalence of mundus inversus through a sequence of theatrically disposed incidents. Goya, during his sojourn in Venice, which has been recently ascertained, denotes the significance of the ritual of the famous carnival —the most theatrical of social performances. We suggest that both figures of Pulcinella and of an emblematic anonymous victim of the Spanish Inquisition entail moral irony and mockery in order to criticize their era, and we bring to light their common «misruling» and insistently un-rational conduct.
