Biographical history

Italian Renaissance scholar Danilo Aguzzi-Barbagli was born in Arezzo, Italy, in 1924. After completing undergraduate work in Italy, he received his Dottore in Lettere from the University of Florence in 1949 and Ph.D. in English and Comparative Literature from Columbia University in 1959. Aguzzi-Barbagli began his teaching career at Vassar College, New York (1955/56), before moving on to the University of Chicago (1959-1964) and then Tulane University (1964-1971). He joined the University of British Columbia's Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies as a professor in 1971. He taught courses, published and lectured in the Italian language, Italian literature (from the late Middle Ages to the seventeenth century), and comparative literature. After retiring from UBC, Aguzzi-Barbagli died in 1995. The following year an excellent collection of sixteenth and seventeenth-century books collected by Aguzzi-Barbagli were donated to the UBC Library by Hannibal Noce.
