The paper analyses the writings of the two authors who have been distant for four centuries but in whose works we have found closeness in the treatment of the themes of longing and desire as an impetus for the semiotic practice of interpretation. This definition of desire was first mentioned by Gilles Deleuze when talking about Proust's work, but the systems of signs that Deleuze finds in Proust are also applicable to Ariosto. The rich critical opus devoted to the great author of the 20th-century French literature will actually serve us to draw some of the features of Ariosto's renaissance work.
