PAOLO EMILIANO GIUDICI (1812-1872), Italian writer, was born in Sicily. His History of Italian Literature (1844) brought him to the front, and in 1848 he became professor of Italian literature at Pisa, but after a few months was deprived of the chair on account of his liberal views in politics. On the re-establishment of the Italian kingdom he became professor of aesthetics (resigning 1862) and secretary of the Academy of Fine Arts at Florence, and in 1867 was elected to the chamber of deputies. He held a prominent place as an historian, his works including a Scoria del teatro (186o), and Storia dei comuni italiani (1861), besides a translation of Macaulay's History of England (1856). He died at Tonbridge in England, on the 8th of September 1872. A Life appeared at Florence in 1874.
