At No. 246 of the near by Corso Italia, lived Tommaso Sgricci. Born in Castiglion Fiorentino (Arezzo), he was a talented improviser and performer since the time when he was young. He was considered to be a real genius in the art of reciting, especially in improvising tragedies on themes proposed by the public, using original techniques of interpretation that inspired his numerous admirers in Italy, France and England. Even if his reputation was highly controversial, he was recognised by the Court and received honours from literary and scientific associations and from many towns that coined gold and silver medals for him.
