Popis The paper sheds light on the creative process of the composition of the fragmental and unfinished "Hymns to the Graces" of Ugo Foscolo (the title refers to both the one Hymn and the three Hymns). The paper evokes the idea that all the myth and stories inherent to the poem constitutes a “system”, a concept which contributes to underline the idea that all the myths and stories created by Foscolo are connected to each other inside the different editorial stages of the poem. The word “system” was already adopted by Foscolo concerning the myth of the Graces in his Hymns. These stories and myths are also referred to a specific moment of Foscolo’s creative work. The analysis is conducted in the one hand examining all the notes, sketches, lists of subjects and indexes in Foscolo’s manuscripts of the Hymns, such as, for instance Foscolo’s drawings of Gulf of Naples or his annotations and research on the symbolism of the swan, in the other hand it is taking into account all the references to Foscolo’s biography inside the text, including, for instance, the ones to Francois-Xavier Fabre, to the Florentine theaters or to the Viceroy of the Kingdom of Italy.
