Ludovico di Varthema, also known as Barthema and Vertomannus (c. 1470 – 1517), was an Italian traveller, diarist and aristocrat known for being one of the first non-Muslim Europeans to enter Mecca as a pilgrim. Nearly everything that is known about his life comes from his own account of his travels, Itinerario de Ludouico de Varthema Bolognese, published in Rome in 1510.

Ludovico Ariosto (8 September 1474 – 6 July 1533) was an Italian poet. He is best known as the author of the romance epic Orlando Furioso (1516). The poem, a continuation of Matteo Maria Boiardo's Orlando Innamorato, describes the adventures of Charlemagne, Orlando, and the Franks as they battle against the Saracens with diversions into many sideplots. The poem is transformed into a satire of the chivalric tradition. Ariosto composed the poem in the ottava rima rhyme scheme and introduced narrative commentary throughout the work.

Famous Usage: In the novel "A Clockwork Orange" the form of behavioral conditioning the government uses on Alex, the main character, is called the "Ludovico technique."

I wonder if Burgess, the author, used it with the knowledge that it was derived from Ludwig, the first name of Beethoven, whom Alex adores. The government also uses Beethoven's music, along with other classic composers, as background during the Ludovico treatments, since it promotes empathy.
