Of the seven recurrences of the term gypsy (Zigeuner) in Nietzsche’s works, only two possess deep philosophical implications: a short statement in RWB and the poem Yorick als Zigeuner. In this article I suggest that the gypsy figure in Nietzsche should be read in close interdependence with the problem of liberation, and that it shares three features in common with the figure of the «free spirit»: (i) the nomadic condition and the absolute freedom it entails; (ii) the struggle for surviving, in which death and destruction are essential experiences man must undergo so that he may create himself and «become who he is»; (iii) laughter, the surest sign of a fully enacted Dionysian human condition that is capable to «dance on the abyss». As the analysis of Yorick als Zigeuner will demonstrate, the gypsy figure possesses these three features, thus it is paradigmatic of a perfectly liberated mankind.
