The humanist Nascimbene Nascimbeni from Ferrara was rector of the Dubrovnik public school in the 1560s. He prepared a new edition of Cicero’s treatise De inventione and published it in Venice, thanks to the financial support from the Ragusan Senate. Obscure circumstances surrounding Nascimbene’s abrupt departure have not overshadowed his contribution to the humanistic scholarship of Dubrovnik.
