I am not familiar with the name Mantovano as it relates to Virgil.  Can
you tell me the connection?

Tennyson so addressed Vergil, using the modern Italian form of the ethnic:

I salute thee, Mantovano,
I that loved thee since my day began,
Wielder of the stateliest measure ever moulded by the lips of man.
