Zanobi da strada

Zanobi da Strada (1312 in Strada in Chianti, near Florence – 1361, Avignon), was an Italian translator and correspondent of Petrarch and a friend of Giovanni Boccaccio.[1]

He was responsible for some manuscript rediscoveries in the Monte Cassino monastery library to which he had access as secretary to the diocesan bishop and where he lived from 1355 to 1357. Early Apuleius MS marginalia (incl. mysterious spurcum additamentum at Met. 10.21.1) is in his hand.
