Casa, Giovanni della

Giovanni della Casa (jōvän´nē dĕl´lä kä´zä), 1503–56, Italian cleric and poet. He was archbishop of Benevento and papal nuncio to Venice. He wrote lyric verse, a life of Bembo, and a treatise on etiquette, the Galateo (1558, tr. 1576 and 2013), which advises good manners for their own sake and to avoid offending others, and uses aesthetic principles as a standard for behavior. Some of his verse has great dignity and formal beauty while other examples of his poetry are quite salacious in content.

See L. de' Lucchi, An Anthology of Italian Poems (1922).
