Biography/Description

H. was a scion of a noble family of Mantova that had to flee to Ferrara when the Gonzagas took over Mantova. He apparently did not have to work for a living, and it would seem he did not. He wrote poetry and treatises on law, the most fanciful of the latter being the one De equo sive caballo (TUI 1584 t. 6.1). His most serious treatise, according to Volante, Quaestiones criminales does not appear in TUI 1584.

Source: R. Volante, in DGI 1.280–281.
