Francesco Saverio Bartoli

Leonardo Spinelli

Abstract


A modestly talented actor and playwright, Bartoli acted with his wife Teodora Medebach in the theatre company directed by Antonio Sacco from 1771 to 1777. Sick with tuberculosis, he precociously retired from the stage to become a bookseller. He is renown as the author of the first biographical dictionary of italian actors, published in 1782. Conversely, the majority of his scholarly writings and historical-artistic works remain unpublished.
