Summary expansion
The comedy, written in prose, is preceded by a description of the masquerade in verse, entitled "El sacrificio de gli intronati celebrato ne i giuochi del carnauale in Siena l'anno MDXXXI sotto il Sodo dignissimo archintronato," (identified as Marc Antonio Piccolomini by Melzi). The main plot device--boy and girl twin mix-up--is based on a novella by Bandello, and became very popular not only in Italy, but also in French translations. It is also considered a source for the plot of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night."
