    • This collection of papers by the most qualified scholars in the field constitutes an in-depth, organic and up-to-date study of the thought and influence of Angelo Colocci (1474-1549) - collector, philologist, bibliophile and humanist, officer and companion of Leo X - especially as they relate to the nascent discipline of Romance literary studies. Angelo Colocci was one of the most important and complex characters of Roman humanism. His interests ranged from ancient and medieval Latin metrics to contemporary poetry; from early vernacular literature to the sixteenth-century debate about the Language Question. His library, which is a reflection and an emblem of his own many-faceted studies and of his many intellectual friendships (Sannazzaro, Pontano, Cariteo, Bembo, Castiglione, Tebaldeo, Pier Vettori...), contains some of the most precious witnesses to the various neo-Latin lyric traditions, such as the songbook Vaticanus Latinus 3793, the Provenćal songbook M, and the Galician-Portuguese Colocci-Brancuti songbook.
