Abstract

This essay analyzes epistolary writings in Latin by three prominent figures in early seventeenth-century Lombardy (Italy): Girolamo Bossi, Aquilino Coppini and Sigismondo Boldoni. Starting in 1613, Bossi and Coppini published collections of letters that were emulating the Classical tradition established by the masters of the local ancient Roman Gymnasium (Scuole Palatine), while they themselves were academics, holding teaching positions both in Milan and Pavia. Not so Boldoni, whose letters were only published in1651, by his brother Ottavio. Before dying of the plague in 1630, at the age of thirty-three, the spirited, medically trained poet had already achieved fame with his Laurus (1617), an elegant prose in Latin devoted to his native Lake Como.
