On the beauty of women by Agnolo Firenzuola( Book )
15 editions published between 1892 and 1992 in English and held by 495 libraries worldwide
First published in 1548, On the Beauty of Women purports to record two conversations shared by a young gentleman, Celso, and four ladies of the upper bourgeoisie in the vicinity of Florence. One afternoon Celso and the ladies consider universal beauty. On a subsequent evening, they attempt to fashion a composite picture of perfect beauty by combining the beautiful features of women they know. The standards of beauty established in the garden give way to the artistic, creative imagination of the human spirit, and the group's movement from garden to hall seems to echo the dialogue's movement from Nature to Art, from divinely to humanly created beauty.<br /><br />Konrad Eisenbichler and Jacqueline Murray have provided the first translation into English of Firenzuola's dialogue since the nineteenth century. In their introduction, they argue that Firenzuola's work presents a useful point of entry into the society and values of the mid-sixteenth century. In its discussion of beauty, the dialogue reveals the intersection of Neoplantonic philosophy and mathematically based artistic theory, both inherited from classical antiquity. Indeed, Firenzuola's treatise has been assessed as one of the most significant expositions of Renaissance aesthetics

Degli undici libri, i primi tre sono occupati dalle avventure del protagonista, il giovane Lucio (omonimo dell'autore, che forse proprio dal protagonista assunse il nome) prima e dopo il suo arrivo a Hypata in Tessaglia (tradizionalmente terra di maghi). Coinvolto già durante il viaggio nell'atmosfera carica di mistero che circonda il luogo, il giovane manifesta subito il tratto distintivo fondamentale del suo carattere, la curiosità, che lo conduce ad incappare nelle trame sempre più fitte di sortilegi che animano la vita della città. Ospite del ricco Milone e di sua moglie Pànfile, esperta di magia, riesce a conquistarsi i favori della servetta Fotide e la convince a farlo assistere di nascosto a una delle trasformazioni cui si sottopone la padrona. Alla vista di Pànfile che, grazie a un unguento, si muta in gufo, Lucio prega Fotide che lo aiuti a sperimentare su di sé tale metamorfosi. Fotide accetta, ma sbaglia unguento, e Lucio diventa asino, pur mantenendo facoltà raziocinanti umane. È questo l'episodio-chiave del romanzo, che muove il resto dell'intreccio. Lucio apprende da Fotide che, per riacquistare sembianze umane, dovrà cibarsi di rose: via di scampo che, subito cercata, è rimandata sino alla fine del romanzo da una lunga serie di peripezie che l'asino incontra

En 1529, à Vérone, G. Trissino traduit en langue italienne le texte latin de Dante, le De vulgari eloquentia, plaidoyer en faveur de la légitimité de l'usage de la langue vulgaire italienne dans la littérature. Le débat sur la langue est alors la préoccupation des érudits et Firenzuola, dans un pamphlet cinglant, rédige un texte mettant à l'honneur un italien fondé sur le toscan.--[Memento]
