Abstract

The article reports the rediscovery, in the Chapter Library of Pescia, of a seventeenth century Italian codex listed inaccurately in official inventories as Romanzo filosofico. The author of the article traces the original title (Il corriero della sconosciuta Amarilli, or The Courier of Unknown Amarilli) and suggests that the anonymous text was the work of Giovanni Ciampoli, man of letters and correspondent of Galileo, giving the date of composition between 1624 and 1630. The manuscript deals particularly with the election of the papal seat of Urban VIII, speaking of him with great adulation. This event provides the opportunity to present a series of allegorical figures, prominent among them Physics (Teofiside) and Mathematics (Queen Clara) who express the author's adherence to Galileo's New Science.
