APPIANO BUONAFEDE (1716-1793), Italian philosopher, was born at Comachio, in Ferrara, and died in Rome. He became professor of theology at Naples in 1740, and, entering the religious body of the Celestines, rose to be general of the order. His principal works, generally published under the assumed name of " Agatopisto Cromazione," are on the history of philosophy:—Della Istoria e delle Indole - di ogni Filosofia, 7 vols., 1772 seq.; and Della Restaurazione di agni Filosofia ne' Secoli, xvi., xvii., xviii., 3 vols., 1789 (German trans. by C. Heydenreich). The latter gives a valuable account of 16th-century Italian philosophy. His other works are Istoria critica e filosofica del suicidio (1761); Delle conquiste celebri esaminate col naturale diritto delle genii (1763); Scoria critica del moderno diritto di natura e delle genti (1789); and a few poems and philosophic comedies.
