Sort: Oldest first
An Italian essayist, controversialist, and critic; born in Piacenza, Jan. 1, 1774; died at Parma, Sept. 14, 1848. His productions are mainly essays and criticisms on art and literature, theses on Aesthetics, pamphlets, panegyrics, and monographs, all of a fugitive nature, which keep their place in letters by their style. His "Letters", "Select Prose", and "Orations and Eulogies", show his style at its best.
