  Famous people of Rome

It is said that Pietro, still a child, drew the crowd to himself by reciting impromptu verses on theme given in front of the door of his house in Via dei chaplains. In 1709 on a similar occasion they stopped to listen to him two distinguished gentlemen: Gian Vincenzo Gravina, well-known scholar and jurist, and founder of the Accademia degli Arcadi, and Lorenzini, a critic of some fame. Gravina was attracted by the poetic talent and fascination of the boy and thus made his protégé. The father Felice was very happy to give his son the opportunity to receive a good education and to be able to enter the high society.
