Faustino Perisauli

Tredozio- Forlì, 1450 c.a - Rimini, 2 december 1523
Faustino Perisauli

He was born in Tredozio after 1450. Probably trained in Bologna, his works reflect the influence of the great Roman and Tuscan humanists of the fifteenth century: Filippo Beroaldo the Elder, Antonio Urceo Codro, Cristoforo Landino, Poliziano, Luigi Pulci. He resided in several Italian cities, including Florence, Urbino, Rome, Cesena, and Rimini, where he became archpriest. He attended the literary circles of Giovan Bruno Parcitadi and Lorenzo Astemio. He died on December 2, 1523.

He was known above all as a vulgar poet, author of jokes, parodies, short cantari and compositions in octaves that were printed mainly in pamphlets and small editions, intended for a popular audience. His first poem in octaves, entitled Trastullo delle donne (1492), was a response to the misogynistic Rattle of women by the Florentine Bernardo Giambullari. A copy is kept in the Trivulziana Library in Milan. The Trastullo is a composition intended for oral performance and consisting of 113 octaves, where the author defends women. In an attempt to disprove the prejudices regarding women and to induce husbands to behave more respectfully towards their wives, cultured quotations are combined with popular expressions.
