Paride da Ceresara (10 February 1466 – 1532) was an Italian humanist, poet, alchemist and astrologer.
He was born in Ceresara and was descended from the Ceresara, a noble family. He was in the service of Isabella d’Este in Mantua and came up with the mythological, allegorical and celebratory themes for at least two of the paintings in her noted studiolo and perhaps the whole cycle. Paride collected and translated classical works such as Plautus’ Aulularia and also studied Hebrew. He also wrote a number of erotic sonnets, signed with his pseudonyms Patrizio Tricasso and Patrizio Tricasso da Ceresara.
