Camilla Soardi (active ca. 1540), a gentlewoman of Casale Monferrato in north-west Italy, was a Renaissance poet, identified as a notable female literary figure by her appearance in both the Teatro delle Donne letterate of Della-Chiesa and Marcello Alberti’s Storia delle Donne scienziate. Gioseffantonio Morano describes her as a virtuoso with a most subtle genius.[1]
