A rare work which testifies to the cultural importance of the small Italian Principalities in the 1500s.
Dissertations in the form of dialogue, held near Ferrara, in the Villa Beriguardum (Delizia del Belriguardo, the so-called Versailles of Padania), in which Cardinal Luigi d’Este (Aloysio Atestio) spent his holidays.
Luigi had studied with Ricci’s son (Camillo) and the author captured him while he was with his humanist friends Sebastiano Delio and Giulio Camillo (called Delminio, Italian humanist and philosopher).
Luigi d’Este (Ferrara, 1538 – Rome, 1586) was an Italian cardinal. He was the second son of The Duke of Ferrara Ercole II d’Este and his wife Princess Renata of France, daughter of Louis XII of France and Anne of Brittany. His paternal grandparents were Alfonso I d’Este and Lucrezia Borgia, daughter of Pope Alexander VI. His older brother Alfonso II d’Este inherited the duchy of Ferrara.
Ricci, Bartolomeo. - Humanist (Lugo 1490 - Ferrara 1569). In Ferrara, he tutored Prince Alfonso d’Este and then Cardinal Luigi, to whom this book is dedicated. He left orations, letters, critical books, a Latin lexicon (Apparatus latinae locutionis, 1533) and a good comedy, “Le balie” (1565).
