Through insightful discussions of Vico's prismatic interpretations of the Italian language and identity, from a polygenic explanation to a more homogeneous characterization that surfaces in the final revision of the Scienza nuova (1744), Gambarota contends that Vico's attempt to create a foundational myth for modern Italy in order to overcome cultural and political disintegration is imbued with the cognitive power of his ingenium, in which talent, memory and imagination constitute "the founding triad of invention" (101).
