According to Girolamo Bargagli, the faint origins of such games can be traced to the Academy of the Grande early in the century and to such figures as ClaudioTolomei. But their true flowering came with the rise of the Intronati.

The Renaissance Theory of Play. Published: 31 January 2013. 5. The Birth of the Assicurate: Italy’s First Female Academy (1654–1704). by University of Toronto Press Inc.

Confined by behavioural norms and professional restrictions, women in Renaissance Italy found a welcome escape in an alternative world of play. This book examines the role of games of wit in the social and cultural experience of patrician women from the early sixteenth to the early eighteenth century.

Beneath the frivolous exterior of such games as occasions for idle banter, flirtation, and seduction, there often lay a lively contest for power and agency, and the opportunity for conventional women to demonstrate their intellect, to achieve a public identity, and even to model new behaviour and institutions in the non-ludic world. By tapping into the records and cultural artifacts of these games, George McClure recovers a realm of female fame that has largely escaped the notice of modern historians, and in so doing, reveals a cohort of spirited, intellectual women outside of the courts.
