Ludovico Pasquali


Ludovico Pasquali

Ludovico Pasquali (Cattaro 1500 circa - Cattaro 1551), also known as Ludvig Paskvalić or Ludovik Paskvojević was an Italian author, from Cattaro in the Albania Veneta (today Kotor, Montenegro).
He was friend, admirer and fellow countryman of Giovanni Bona de Boliris.
He studied in the University of Padova.
Pasquali wrote a collection of poems in Italian language, "Rime Volgari" of 1549 ("Popular Rhymes" - Italian was often called, well into the XVI century, "volgare", with the meaningof "popular": it was thought to be the popular version of Latin). His volume in Latin language "Carmina" ("Poems") was printed in 1551.

Nationalistic dispute

Also historians of Montenegrin and Croatian literature insert Pasquali into their own literatures: for Croats he is Ludvig Paskvalić and Paskalić, for Montenegrins he is Ludovik Paskojević and Pasković.
The preface of the anthology "Croatian Latinists" state : "Having to establish the name of the poet, we have opted for the version Paskvalić because it is favoured by the Latin form (Pascalis) and the Italian (Paschale, Pascale) one of his surname, as the author himself signed alternatively, form that his descendants changed into Pasquali in the XVIII century."
In September 1993 was published the work "Stara knjizevnost Boke" ("The Ancient Literature of the Bay of Kotor")in which the editors - the essayists Slobodan Prosperov Novak, Ivo Banac and Don Branko Sbutega - declared expressly that the aim of their work is that of returning to the Croatian literature the writers of the Bay of Kotor, and in other words of a piece of Montenegro, because those writers, being Catholics, cannot be considered Montenegrins but Croats.
