[Autom. eng. transl.] Despite its brief existence (1540-'42), the Accademia degli Infiammati of Padua was one of the most important in sixteenth-century Italy for the influence it exerted on the development of culture, not only in the Veneto region throughout the century. The main reasons are its physiognomy as an interdisciplinary meeting and exchange place, as well as the objective pursued to promote culture and the vernacular, striving to extend its use to all fields of knowledge, including philosophical and scientific. In this way, the Paduan cenacle not only intended to respond to a new need for the dissemination of knowledge, but also laid the foundations for the foundation of a universal vulgar language. In this perspective, the most recent studies have moved, of which a quick survey is offered, around some of the main animators of the Academy, such as Benedetto Varchi, Alessandro Piccolomini and Sperone Speroni.
