Gian Giorgio Trissino

Trissino was a well known poet, most famous for his tragedy Sofonisba. This tragedy was renowned for its novelty, specifically its lack of religious connection and for its use of blank verse. Beyond this, he is credited for discovering Palladio when he was a stonemason. Palladio would enter his academy and was influenced greatly by Trissino.
