Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The name of an academy founded at Florence in 1582, mainly for promoting the purity of the Italian language. Its emblem was a sieve, and its name referred to its purpose of sifting out the brau or refuse from the language. After a short period of incorporation in the Florentine Academy, it was revived in the early part of the nineteenth century.
