Italian painter and poet. Almost lived almost entirely in Florence. It was patronized by the Duke Ferdinand II. . In 1644-1649. he was at the court of the wife of the Austrian Duke Leopold Claudia de ' Medici in Innsbruck, where he was reputed to be a pleasant conversationalist and an able portraitist. There he conceived and began writing his only literary work – erocomics a poem in 12 Cantos "Reclaimed Malmantile". The poem was completed upon return to his native city, but only published in 1676 under the pseudonym Perlon Zipoli (the anagram of the name of the author).
