all literature about Balatri gave 1676 as his year of birth. Karl Vossler, who
published a selection of the manuscript "Frutti del Mondo" in 1924,
calculated this date after a note about Balatri's death which stated that he
lived until the age of 80.
Balatri's true date of birth is February 21, 1682 (birth register of Pisa)
(Cf. also: Maria Di Salvo, Vita e Viaggi di Filippo Balatri. Russica Romana, VI (1999/2001), 37-57)
