Excerpt from The Two Gentlemen of Verona

The apology, however, hints the innovation. In 1598 Jonson would stage his British comedy in Florence as unhesitatingly as, ten years or so later, Webster staged his Italianate White Devil in Rome or Padua; or shall we say? - with no more trouble of artistic con science than Shakespeare felt in dodging the centuries and dragging the right Renaissance scoundrel Iachimo into a supposed early-british Tragedie of Cymbeline. 'somewhere in Italy' was in fact the spot where an Elizabethan playwright and his audience started upon agreed terms. Apart from the tradition and the ro mance of it, this convention of Italy conveniently accommodated the players, under a wide range of magnificent titles, with a still wider wardrobe of magnificent and miscellaneous costumes.
