Assarino, 1602–72, was a Genoese writer, probably born in Potosì in Bolivia, who led a turbulent life as a political informer, with several spells in prison. He compiled Il Sincero, the first Italian newspaper, and historical works, such as Delle rivoluzioni di Catalogna (1644) and Delle Guerre e Successi d'Italia (1662). His extremely successful novels included La Stratonica (1635), which was translated into French, English, and German, and L'Almerinda (1640), later expanded and completely reworked in I Giuochi di Fortuna (1655).
