FameRank: 4

"Giacomo Taldegardo Francesco di Sales Saverio Pietro Leopardi" was an Italian poet, philosopher, essayist and philologist. Although he lived in a secluded town in the ultra-conservative Papal States, he came in touch with the main thoughts of the Age of Enlightenment/Enlightenment, and, by his own literary evolution, created a remarkable and renowned poetic work, related to the Romanticism/Romantic era. The depth of his reflection on the existence and the human condition makes him a philosopher of considerable depth. The extraordinary lyrical quality of his poetry made him a central protagonist in the European and international literary and cultural landscape.
