- Language of flowers (Hanakotoba) -
The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography, was a Victorian-era means of communication in which various flowers and floral arrangements were used to send coded messages, allowing individuals to express feelings which otherwise could not be spoken. This language was most commonly communicated through Tussie-Mussies, an art which has a following today.

The nuances of the language are now mostly forgotten, but red roses still imply passionate, romantic love and pink roses a lesser affection; white roses suggest virtue and chastity and yellow roses still stand for friendship or devotion. Also commonly known meanings are sunflowers, which can indicate either haughtiness or respect -- they were the favorite flower of St. Julie Billiart for this reason. Gerbera (daisy) means innocence or purity. The iris, being named for the messenger of the gods in Greek mythology, still represents the sending of a message. A pansy signifies thought, a daffodil regard, and a strand of ivy; fidelity.

Though most popular in the Victorian period, the symbolic use of flowers dates back to antiquity. In medieval and Renaissance culture, flowers were often given moral meanings. This is most apparent in art in which saints are often depicted with flowers that are symbolic of their virtues. Liana DeGirolami Cheney notes that "some of the Christian symbols for Virginity or Chastity are the white rose, the myrtle, a vessel or vase, the lily, and the unicorn". Victorian sources also used flowers to describe moral, spiritual, or emotional truths.
The Turkish "Salem", or language of objects, was developed to communicate any message without the need to write.
There is also an independent Japanese flower language, called hanakotoba.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

N. 20 - Duetto

DORABELLA
Prenderò quel brunettino,
Che più lepido mi par.

FIORDILIGI
Ed intanto io col biondino
Vo' un po' ridere e burlar.

DORABELLA
Scherzosetta ai dolci detti
Io di quel risponderò.

FIORDILIGI
Sospirando i sospiretti
Io dell'altro imiterò.

DORABELLA
Mi dirà: «Ben mio, mi moro».

FIORDILIGI
Mi dirà: «Mio bel tesoro».

FIORDILIGI E DORABELLA
Ed intanto che diletto,
Che spassetto io proverò!

partono e s'incontrano in Don Alfonso

English Libretto or Translation:

No. 20 - Duet

DORABELLA
I'll take the dark one,
Who seems to me more fun.

FIORDILIGI
And meantime I'll laugh
And joke a bit with the fair one.

DORABELLA
Playfully I'll answer
His sweet words.

FIORDILIGI
Sighing, I'll imitate
The other's sighs.

DORABELLA
He'll say to me:
My love, I'm dying!

FIORDILIGI
He'll say to me:
My dearest treasure!

FIORDILIGI AND DORABELLA
And meanwhile
What sport and pleasure
I shall have!
