Fortiguerra, Niccolo (3)

Fortiguerra, Niccolo (3)

an Italian prelate and poet, surnamed the Younger, to distingtuish him from an ancient member of his family, the cardinal of the same name, was born at Pistoja, November 25, 1674. While still young, he showed quite a disposition for poetry; but after he had been made doctor, in 1695, he went to. Rome, and distinguished himself there by his knowledge. He accompanied into Spain the papal legate, Zondadari, and on his return to Rome became honorary chamberlain to Clement XI, canon of Santa Maria Maggiore, and referendary of two chancelleries. About the same time he was admitted into the academy of the Arcades, under the name of Nidalmo Tiseo. In 1715 he improvised a poem in the manner of Berni, Du Pulci, and Ariosto. He died February 17, 1735, leaving several orations, addresses, and other minor pieces, for which see Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale s.v.
