LELIO - In the Commedia dell’Arte, Lelio had the role of the Lover. He is kind,  in some way feminine in his behavior and he speaks softly. His costume is rich in details and it follows the latest fashion. To play the role of the Lover in the Commedia dell’Arte, a unique prominent role (there was no first or second lover) of an amusing lover, the character had surely to be good-looking, gallant and gentle to the point of affectation and he had to have a mellow voice.
