The aim of this paper is an enquiry on Flavio Querenghi’s point of view about the traditional debate between ‘vita attiva’ and ‘vita contemplativa’. In his philosophical work, Discorsi morali politici et naturali (1644), the Paduan author dedicates two chapters to this issue, from where it emerges a clear distinction between «Vita della Città», «Vita della Villa» and «Vita Solitaria». Through the analysis of these arguments, I will show how Querenghi delves into the notions of ‘solitude’, ‘country life’, ‘otium’ and ‘negotium’ in order to clarify the best way to live in accordance with human nature.
