Marsilio Ficino 1433 –1499 He was one of the most influential humanist philosophers of the early Italian Renaissance, an astrologer, a reviver of Neoplatonism who was in touch with every major academic thinker and writer of his day, and the first translator of Plato's complete extant works into Latin. When Cosimo  Medici decided to refound Plato's Academy he put Marsilio in charge..  Marsilio translated the Hermes Trismegistus of alchemy and modern magic.

Bust of Marsilio Ficino by Andrea Ferrucci in the Cathedral of Florence, Santa Maria del Fiore. Marsilio Ficino was an important Italian humanist philosopher. He saw melancholy as an asset to creative people as it helped them access the transcendent.
