a website dedicated to the work of

"IMMANUELLO ROMANO, JEWISH POET OF ROME

c.1261  c.1332"

 

The poet of the Machberot [“Conversation Pieces”], the author of Ha-Tofet ve-ha-Eden [“Hell and Heaven”] and an accomplished sonneteer in both Hebrew and Italian. His work is "unrivalled for its hilarious word-play and agile manipulations of the Hebrew language".
