Umanisti titolati e di provincia
Biglietti in volgare tra Francesco Barbaro e Bartolomeo Baldana
The paper focuses on Bartolomeo Baldana, lawyer and government official at the Papal Court during 15th Century, reviewing his biography on the basis of some new documents. It is thus highlighted its cultural background, which in addition to Venetian Humanism’s Leaders like Francesco Barbaro and Pietro Donà involved some lesser known Humanists whose studies were nevertheless devoted to historical features of Latin language. Two vernacular texts written by Baldana and Barbaro at the time when they were commissioned as public administrators are examined in the light of these circumstances.
