Maffei, who is also a co-president at the business software maker, is leaving to accept a position at another company, Oracle said Thursday.

Among the works of Maffei are "Commentariorum rerum urbanarum libri XXXVIII" (Rome, 1506; Paris, 1516), all encyclopedia of all subjects known at that time, prepared with great care, but not always with the best judgment.
Maffei's lives of Sixtus IV, Innocent VIII, Alexander VI, and Pius III, which appear as an appendix to the Platina, and which were also published separately (Venice, 1518), are taken from the "Commentarii"; in them Maffei blames unsparingly the disordered life of the Roman court.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Marchese Francesco Scipione Maffei
He began at an early age to write poetry which, however, was marred by the bad taste of the period, but association with such men as Pastorini and Maggi and the study of the great Italian poets brought about a change in his style.
Maffei had already devoted some years to archaeological and artistic studies and in this connection had amassed in his palace a very valuable collection.
In particular his scholarly publications on the history of his birthplace aroused such enthusiasm on the part of the Veronese that it was only with difficulty that he prevailed on them not to erect a statue to him during his lifetime.

Nel secolo delle riforme, anche la tragedia, genere estremamente regolato e considerato eccelso, che aveva dato prove dignitose, si evolvette.
Scipione Maffei (Verona 1675-1755), contribuì alla riforma del teatro italiano con trattati teorici e quattro opere teatrali: due commedie, un dramma pastorale e la tragedia Merope (1713), punto di partenza per la riforma del teatro tragico.
Occorreva però il temperamento insofferente di un intellettuale alla perpetua ricerca di se stesso, il piemontese Vittorio Alfieri, per fare della tragedia l'espressione di una moderna tensione libertaria, che si concretizzò nel conflitto fra il tiranno (qualsiasi principio di autorità, anche interiore) e l'uomo libero che afferma la propria dignità e libertà con la morte.
