(Redirected from DONATO D'ORVIETO.)

Italian poet; born at Orvieto in 1607. In 1625, being then at Sienna, he paraphrased in Hebrew terza-rima three "widduyim": Baḥya's, beginning V09p180001.jpg (following the Italian paraphrase in verse of his maternal grandfather, Johanan Judah Alatrini), that of R. Nissim, and an anonymous widdui beginning V09p180002.jpg V09p180003.jpg. He was also the author of three sonnets in Hebrew and Italian, and of a Hebrew dirge consisting of eight strophes of six verses each. All these poems were published in one volume (Venice, 1628).
