Pittori, Lodovico Bigi
Pittori, Lodovico Bigi (in Latin, Pictorius), a modern Latin poet, was born in 1454 at Ferrara. He cultivated with some success philosophy and theology, but his favorite study was Latin poetry. The only defect of his Latin poems is a kind of monotonous facility, we mention of his works, Candida, a poem (Modena, 1491, 4to): — Tumultuariorum carminum lib. 7 (ibid. 1492, 4to): — Christianorum opusculorum lib. 3 (ibid. 1496 or 1498, 4to): — Epigrmammata in Christi vitamm (Milan, 1513, 4to): — In coelestes proceres hymnorum epitaphiorumque liber (Ferrara, 1514, 4to): — Sacra et satyrica epigrammata (ibid. 1514, 4to): — Epiganrammata moerulia lib. 4 (Modena, 1516, 4to); a collection of sermons in Italian. All these works have become very rare. Freytag and David Clement have given a complete list of them.
