Description Since De Robertis's studies on poetry collections (canzonieri) awareness has grown that a miscellaneous manuscript is not a container of texts but an organic structure that realizes a system. The phenomenon is also valid for the miscellaneous texts in prose, and there are three levels: microtext (individual lessons), macrotext (copyright), supertext (i.e. the whole miscellany). One must take into account the three levels because they often are transmitted jointly, but not always: even when the supertext has an organic (or almost organic) tradition, there may be surprises at the level of microtext or macrotext.
