Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bartolomeo Maranta, also Bartholomaeus Marantha (Venosa, 1500 - Molfetta, 1571) was an Italian physician, botanist, and literary theorist. The Marantaceae, a family of herbaceous perennials related to the gingers, are named after him. His name was also given to a street in Rome. Maranta was born in Venosa, in 1500 or 1514, to the lawyer and academic Roberto Maranta, originally from Venosa, and Beatrice Monna, a noblewoman from Molfetta. Having graduated at Naples, around 1550 he moved to Pisa where he became a student of the botanist and physician Luca Ghini. From 1554 to 1556, he worked with the botanical garden of Naples that Gian Vincenzo Pinelli had founded, and around 1568 helped found a botanical garden in Rome.show more
