Lorenzo di Ser Piero Lorenzi was Professor of Philosophy and Medicine in Pisa, whose reputation reached its height at the end of the 15th century. His death was less distinguished, however, he threw himself into a well out of despair at being able to raise money for the purchase price of a house in Florence.
