Date of birth[edit]

The Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani (online version; I don't know how to access the book if there is one) has October 20. It lists several authorities, although I don't know if they related to the date. Italian WP (and others) also has the 20th, but without a specific reference. Matsen 1974, the main English-language book, and Britannica, have October 29. LilyKitty suggested this could be due to an O.S./N.S. difference, although that is speculation. The Gregorian calendar was introduced in Italy in 1582 (over a hundred years later) but it is true that if you project backwards, the difference in the 15th century would be 9 days. I don't know if doing this retrospective change is at all common. Matsen has a footnote, but I can't see it online. Hence the dodge in the article. David Brooks (talk) 18:48, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
