Padua: 1st Ellul 1607
Well known as a grammarian Samuel Archivolti was born in Cesena and in his youth studied with R. Meir Katzenellenbogen. In 1563 Archivolti is known to have lived in Bologna; he visited Venice occasionally between 1565 and 1602, where he worked as a proof corrector. From 1568 he lived in Padua, where he served as principal of the yeshivah and Av Beth Din. Leone Modena was his pupil and so was Cardinal Marco Marini, who studied Hebrew with him. Modena and Archivolti contributed laudatory poems to Marini's Arca Noae (1593).
