Abstract

Antonius Laetus, Hirundo: these are the latinized signatures of Antonio Allegri called Correggio and his assistant from Parma Francesco Maria Rondani. Michelangelo Anselmi instead, signed one of his altarpiece with a cabalistic writing method. That was one of the encrypted alphabet used by Cornelio Agrippa. According to previous studies, often the artist name matches with his portrait. On the contrary this essay analyzes signatures, words and their variant spelling as a signifiant, as images translating a message, in the same way as in a calligram or a rebus.
