St. Aloysius Gonzaga (Italian: Luigi Gonzaga; March 9, 1568 - June 21, 1591) was an Italian aristocrat who became a member of the Society of Jesus. While still a student at the Roman College, he died as a result of caring for the victims of an epidemic. He was beatified in 1605, and canonized in 1726.

Antonio Cesari (Verona, January 17, 1760 - Ravenna, October 1, 1828) was an Italian linguist, writer and scholar. He belonged to the order of St. Philip Neri and he was the theorist of purism of the nineteenth century.
