    OK Angel, that's helpful. Every dictionary I checked seemed to limit the meaning to a meeting, but I was trying to stretch the definition to include "the person met" because it seemed to fit better with the rhythm of the poem I was translating!

    Oh well...it was worth a try! :D

    Penso che si possa dire "è stato un incontro casuale" riferito ad una persona però... o anche "è un incontro di qualche sera fa", per esempio!
    In questi casi "incontro" è effettivamente riferito alla persona, è una figura retorica però ^^
