1778, Feb 61827, Sep 10
an Italian writer, revolutionary and poet. He is remembered especially for his 1807 poetry book, Dei Sepolcri. Foscolo, who, for causes not clearly explained, had changed his Christian name Niccolò to that of Ugo, now began to take an active part in the stormy political discussions which the fall of the republic of Venice had provoked. He was a prominent member of the national committees, and addressed an ode to Napoleon, expecting Napoleon to overthrow the Venetian oligarchy and create a free republic.
