24) Vittorio Alfieri
Vittorio Alfieri (1749-1803), Italian dramatist and poet. Considered the "founder of Italian tragedy". He mentions his hair colour in his poem titled "Self-portrait".
"Sublime mirror of truthful words, show me
In soul and body what I am: scant hair
Thinning above the brow, but still rich red,
A figure tall and slim, on two straight shanks,"
