Daniele Spinola, one of Galileo’s correspondents whose letters are published in the Favaro edition, does not seem to have attracted much scholarly attention. Spinola’s relationship with Galileo is indicated by the surviving correspondence of ten letters, one of which is by Galileo, which covers discontinuously a period of three years, between 1637 and 1640, and also in quite a few fairly unimportant references which can be traced in a parallel correspondence between Galileo and Spinola’s own teacher, Vincenzo Renieri.2
