Fortiguerra, Niccolo (1674-1735), an Italian prelate and poet, born at Pistoja. His chief work was an epic poem called Ricciardetto, in thirty cantos, which takes great liberties with history, but displays much keen satire. This may have been the poet's reason for postponing its publication till after his death. He also wrote short poems and sonnets.
