 Definition (1304–74) Italian poet, humanist and essayist, and one of the most important intellectual figures of the early Renaissance. [d] [e]

Yes, Petrarch would be best. His birth name was Francesco Petracco which he later latinized to Francesco Petrarca. Petrarch is an Anglicization; alone it is common usage but Francesco Petrarch is historically incorrect. --...said Theodore Beale (talk) (Please sign your talk page posts by simply adding four tildes, ~~~~.)

(edit conflict!)

Don't hesitate to move the article back to Francesco Petrarch; maybe that's right, I don't claim to know much about him. It's just that we prefer the names by which someone is most commonly known, and there are some historical figures, like Michelangelo (often from the Renaissance, no?), who have these sorts of single names. --Larry Sanger 19:32, 1 November 2007 (CDT)

No conflict, I was offering support for your action. In fact, I would have moved the article myself, but I didn't know how.Theodore Beale 05:07, 2 November 2007 (CDT)
