Clemente Bondi (1742–1821)

Bondi, Clemente (bon’dē). An Italian poet; born near Parma, June 27, 1742; died at Vienna, June 20, 1821. At the suppression of the Company of Jesus, he, though a Jesuit, lauded that act in a poem and had to flee his country. While yet a member of the Jesuit order he wrote a spirited humorous poem, ‘Rural Days’ (1773), in three cantos, descriptive of the pranks and sports of a band of students.
