1588 Sannazaro Italian Renaissance Poetry Della Vergine Venice Giolito Woodcuts. Century printing of the poetry of Italian author Jacopo Sannazaro.
Century Naples native, wrote in both Latin and Italian, but his Italian prose set the foundation for other poets to use Italian as their preferred literary language. Venetian publisher Gabriele Giolito was, too, an important force in establishing Italian as a primary printing language. In fact, he was the first major publisher to prefer the vernacular Italian to Latin when it came to printing. The pairing of these two individuals makes this work an icon of Italian literature.
