Luigi Groto, Italian poet
Luigi Groto (1541-1585), Italian poet. The circular Italian inscription gives his name, calls him the 'blind man of Hadria' (referring to Adria, northern Italy), and states that here he is 31 years of age. Groto studied philosophy and literature despite losing his sight soon after birth. He lived and worked in Venice, where he published several works of poetry and plays. Groto also worked as an editor on books by the 16th-century Italian aristocrat Giovanni Maria Bonardo. Artwork from the 1589 edition of Bonardo's 'La grandezza, larghezza e distanza di tutte le sfere'. This work concerned the nature of the planets, stars and celestial spheres.
