This chapter discusses several letters by and to Isotta Nogarola (1418–1466), an Italian-born French author. The early letters by and to Isotta Nogarola, sometimes jointly with her elder sister Ginevra, circulated among a close circle of humanistically trained aristocrats closely related to the Nogarola family, one of the leading noble clans of Verona. The quality of those relationships was conditioned to some extent by the longer history of the author's city and family. One of the letters discussed in the chapter is by Isotta Nogarola to Ermolao Barbaro in which Nogarola introduces herself to Barbaro as an author of letters in classical Latin style and thus a member of the coterie of youthful humanist professionals and amateurs. Other letters discussed are: Isotta Nogarola to Giorgio Bevilacqua and Isotta Nogarola to Antonio Borromeo.

Keywords:   Verona, Giorgio Bevilacqua, letters, Ermolao Barbaro, Antonio Borromeo
