Pietro Bembo

As a Renaissance intellectual, Pietro Bembo advocated the Tuscan dialect as the vernacular language for poetry and literature in Italy, which facilitated composers’ creating lyrical styles for the madrigal musical form. (Titian, 1539) Pietro Bembo, (20 May 1470 – 18 January 1547) was an Italian scholar, poet, and literary theorist who also was a member of the Knights Hospitaller, and a cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church. As an intellectual of the Italian Renaissance (15th16th c.), Pietro Bembo greatly influenced the development of the Tuscan dialect as a literary language for poetry and prose, which, by later codification into a standard language, became the modern Italian language. In the 16th century, Bembo’s poetry, essays, books proved basic to reviving interest in the literary works of Petrarch. In the field of music, Bembo’s literary writing techniques helped composers develop the techniques of musical composition that made the madrigal the most important secular music of 16th-century Italy.
