Standomi un giorno (aka Canzone 323, Canzone delle Visioni, Visions de Petrarque, etc.) by Francesco Petrarch is a 14th-century Italian poem. Four famous poets of the Renaissance translated or adapted the poem: Clément Marot, Joachim du Bellay, Jan van der Noot, and Edmund Spenser. Various editions of these works were illustrated, and Spenser's Theatre for Voluptuous Worldlings has been called the first English emblem book.
