Condition Report

Interesting letter from the poet like Secretary of the Consistorial Lawyers, a position that had been conferred on him by Pope Braschi in 1791; the consistorial lawyers were considered family members and guests of the pope. The letter is a direct testimony of the economic difficulties of Monti, who had also taken charge of his wife's family. In this period the poet was composing his masterpiece, the Bassvilliana.
