Summary expansion
In 55 short discourses, Garzoni presents his classification of types, using excerpts and anecdotes from the works of modern and classical writers. His classification scheme includes five species: "cervelli" (virtuous, wise, good), "cervellini" (vain, fickle, frivolous, capricious), "cervelluzzi" (disagreeable, insensitive, stupid), "cervelletti" (bad, ), "cervelloni" (industrious, ingenious, virile, passionate), and "cervellazzi" (vicious, vile), each having its particular nature and temprament. Each characteristic is the subject of one of Garzoni's discourses. Also included is a long section on the improvement of one's memory. See Paolo Cherchi, Enciclopedismo e politica della riscrittura: Tommaso Garzoni. Pisa: Pacini, 1980
