Fazio degli Uberti (c. 1310–c. 1370)

Uberti, Fazio degli (fät’sē-ō dāl’yē ö-bār’tē). An Italian poet; born in Pisa (?) or in Florence about 1310; died at Verona, about 1370. He very early yearned to place his name beside Dante’s; the result being a curious poem, ‘The World Described,’ a servile but not entirely contemptible imitation of the ‘Divine Comedy.’ He wrote also inferior stanzas and sonnets.
