Filicaia, Vincenzo da (1642-1707), an Italian poet, was born at Florence. He composed poems in Latin and in Italian, and some odes that he wrote upon the defeat of the Turks by John Sobieski and the Duke of Lorraine were printed in 1684. The Queen of Sweden, Christina, and the Grand Duke of Tuscany both befriended the poet, and he was eventually made governor of Pisa. His works were collected by his son Scipio, and published as Poesie Toscane di Vincenzo da Filicaia.
