Pietro Aretino


Italian prose writer, bon vivant and self-made renaissance man involved in every aspect of society from the highest to the lowest. Elegant, clever, bi-sexual, he also wrote porno sonnets describing sexual positions. The son of a shoemaker, he studied painting at Perugia; then went to Rome. His satirical works were often an attack of the wealthy and famous. He was either catered to or denounced by the wealthy of society. His tragedy "Orazia" was published in 1546 followed by five comedies and six volumes of letters.

Aretino died 10/21/1556, Venice Italy.
