SUMMARY: This contribution offers the critical edition of a Latin eclogue composed in 1403 by the Veronese poetess Angela Nogarola, with an historical commentary. The text is transmitted only by the MS Trento, Bibl. Comunale, 4973. This eclogue is dedicated to Francesco Barbavara, the most important minister of Giangaleazzo Visconti, duke of Milan. The essay explains the allegories of this pastoral poem: Barbavara is symbolized by the sheperd Maecenas, in exile far from his fields; Giangaleazzo is represented as a high beech (altissima... fagus), the most beautiful tree in the forest, allegory of Milan. After Visconti’s death in september 1402, the dukedom was in trouble, and Barbavara was forced to escape from Milan because of an insurrection headed by Antonio Porro, symbolized by the sheperd Porreus.
