Abstract
The white Devil or vittoria corombona is as tumultuous a melodrama as any written during the Elizabethan Age, filled with violent deeds performed by heroic personages , its plot involving love, treachery and revenge, seems incredible ; but it is based on actual events which took place in sixteenth –century Italy. The white Devil is based on a tragedy of real life which had made a deep impression in Italy in the sixteenth century. The characters by and large as well as many of the situations and events of the play are historical. The title white Devil means a devil disguised under a fair outside.
