Summary
First printed in 1555, the Dialogo, by Italian humanist and historian Paolo Giovio, bishop of Nocera, was the first work to appear on Italian emblems. Giovio and his friend Lodovico Domenichi, discuss the role of the emblem and motto from ancient times on, and conclude that the modern emblem in Italy came about as a result of the French invasions during the late 15th and early 16th centuries. The ideal emblem should be well-balanced between image and motto, neither too obscure nor too simple, attractive, not in human form, and with a motto in a foreign language
