Marc'Antonio Maioraggio was a famous Milanese academic and humanist. Close to Girolamo Cardano. Founder of the Accademia dei Trasformati. Maioràgio, Marcantonio. Real name Anton Maria Conti (Maioragio, Lombardy, 1514 - Milan 1555). Professor of eloquence (1540) in Milan. He then attacked Cicero with his Antiparadoxon libri VI (1546), entering into a great controversy with the other humanist M. Nizolius.

It was said that he died of tuberculosis from the excess of study and writing. One of his descendants, Adriano Conti, published a “Vita di Marc'Antonio Maioraggio” in 1656, using unpublished material. During his short life he became famous throughout Europe with his books printed in different countries. Oratio in aleatores, Mediolani 1541; Panegyricus Io.
