Summary expansion
The author, a native of Pescia, studied medicine and philosophy under Simone Porzio at Pisa before embarking on a 10-year literary career in 1548. Following the publication of his last work, a book of secrets, printed by Giolito in 1557 (placed on the Index seven years later), Della Barba seems to have given up writing altogether and returned to his medical career. In 1559 he became chief physician to the Medici pope Pius IV
