GIUSEPPE GIOACHINO BELLI (1791-1863), Italian poet, was born at Rome, and after a period of literary employment in poor circumstances was enabled by marriage with a lady of means to follow his own special bent. He is remembered for his vivid popular poetry in the Roman dialect, a number of satirical sonnets which in their own way are unique. See Morandi's edition, I sonetti romaneschi (1886-1889).
