- n. a person who is unusual
Sorry, no etymologies found.
When Dolce says that Titian painted with Giorgione at the Fondaco, “non avendo egli allora appena venti anni,” he is only trying to make out that his hero, here as everywhere, was a most unusual person (the whole dialogue is a glorification of the master).
