(b Milan, c1718; d Dresden, Vienna or Milan, after 1787). Italian librettist. His academic name was ‘Filodosso’. Nothing is known of his life before his appointment as imperial secretary to the vicariate in Vienna some time before the mid-1740s. Presumably, he became amanuensis to the court poet Pietro Metastasio at about the same time. The fullest sources of information on Migliavacca are a dozen letters written by Metastasio
