    Abstract:
    Biography of and tribute to the erudite Luigi Antonio Paolozzi (Chianciano Terme, 1706-1765), cancelliere of the Gran Duchy of Tuscany for Amiata and the Val di Chiana. It aims at highlighting the important role of Paolozzi in the historical context of the period, and reasses its weight.
