Italian term or phrase: testi d\'occasione
Contesto:

Testi d’occasione sono anche, in numero imprecisato, quelli che figurano connessi alla storia d’amore per Laura ma che originariamente dovettero essere scritti dietro sollecitazioni mondane o per accontentare le pressanti richieste dei declamatori di versi altrui che frequentavano le corti. Si veda al riguardo la lettera V 2 delle Seniles, indirizzata al Boccaccio. Meritano d’essere rilevati i sonetti 108, 112 e 113, che furono indirizzati al poeta Sennuccio del Bene, tardo esponente del Dolce Stil Nuovo: si tratta di testi che forse facevano parte di una più ampia corrispondenza in versi, nella quale la critica ha recentemente indicato un momento fondamentale nello sviluppo del mito di Laura.

Grazie,
