400 years after the death of Giulio Cesare Cortese, the commemoration organized by the Lazzari Association on December 22nd.

Giulio Cesare Cortese was (together with Giovan Battista Basile) the greatest poet of the Neapolitan Baroque language, as well as a staunch defender and promoter of the Neapolitan language, who lived in the 16th century (1570/1575 – 1622). He was the author of works which deserve the right place in the didactic and diffusion field even outside the exclusive academic studies.
In the continuation of the initiatives launched by I Lazzari Association (we recall the study of Vaiasseide at the Grenoble in Napoli), on 22 December 2022 (400 years after his death, 22 December 1622), I Lazzari Association organized an event at Church of S.Anna di Palazzo, in the Spanish Quarters of Napoli, where the remains of Cortese rest).

The Neapolitan poet will be remembered with a short conference by Davide Brandi, where a plaque will be unveiled donated by the Lazzari Association to the Church of S .Anna di Palazzo and where a Mass will be celebrated in suffrage of G.C.Cortese.

The event is open to everyone.
