Summary expansion
According to Castiglione, the courtier imparts wisdom and advice to benevolent and wise princes. In all his accomplishments, whether they be in arms, arts, or in plain social intercourse, the courtier should not appear to strive too hard, but should maintain an attitude of "sprezzatura," or cool panache. This ed. was "revised" and "corrected" i.e. "cut" by Antonio Cicarelli, censor o Pope Sixtus V
