Alamami, Or Alemanni, Luigi, an Italian-poet, born at Florence in 1495, died at Amboise, France, in 1556. His father was devoted to the party of the Medici. Suspected of conspiring against the life of Cardinal Julius, who was governing Florence in the name of the pope, he tied first to Venice, and, after the accession of the cardinal to the papal throne under the name of Clement VII, to France. Repeated attempts to reestablish himself in his native city failed. Francis I., who had a high opinion of him, finally took him into his service, and, after the peace of Crespy in 1544, appointed him ambassador at the court of Charles V. He retained the good will of the successor of Francis, Henry II. He left many poems, satires, fables, and other light literature. His principal work is his didactic poem, La Coltirazione (Paris, 1546).
