This book is composed of two works by the Roman poet, Publio Ovidio Nasone. The first, and shorter work, is titled I Rimedi di Amore, and was translated into the vernacular by Eschilo Acanzio, P.A.— which is the pseudonym of Giovanni Pindemonte (1751-1812). The second, longer work is I Fasti, translated by Giovanni Battista Bianchi. This poem winds through the feasts and festivities of Roman life.
