Footnote: Vincenzo Monti (February 19, 1754 - October 13, 1828) was an Italian poet, playwright, translator, and scholar. He was born in Alfonsine, Province of Ravenna, Emilia-Romagna, the son of Fedele and Domenica Maria Mazzari, landowners and was educated at the seminar in Faenza and at the University of Ferrara, where he studied medicine and jurisprudence. In 1775, he was admitted to membership in the Arcadia Academy and the following year, his first book "La visione di Ezechiello" ("Ezechiello's vision") was published. In 1778, Monti moved to Rome, invited there by the cardinal and papal legate in Ferrara, Scipione Borghese. He married Teresa Pichler and together, the couple had a daughter, Costanza, and a son, Francesco (who died at the age of two). He left Rome in 1797 and after visiting Bologna and Venice, he finally settled in Milan, forsaking his former opposition to the French Revolution (expressed in the "Bassvilliana") and become a supporter of the newborn Cisalpine Republic. In 1799, he was forced to leave the city when the French were defeated, but it took him only two years to return, following the Battle of Marengo (1800). While in Paris, Monti devoted more and more of his time to translations from French and Latin, which today are considered to be his best works: he published "La Pucelle d'Orleans" by Voltaire, which was soon followed by the "Satire" by Persio and the "Iliade" (Iliad) by Homer. After the fall of Napoleon in 1815, Monti tried to win back the Austrian regime with his last poems "Il mistico omaggio" and "Il ritorno di Astrea", before committing to the development of Italian linguistics during his last years.
