English term or phrase: directed to him as a third party
Non capisco cosa significhi la frase in questo contesto. Che doveva essere Zuanne a fingersi diretto interlocutore anziché semplice intermediario?

Five years later, in 1541, Jerome had become convinced of Lodovico’s gift, and was determined to give it space to flower. He resigned one of his teaching posts, as a lecturer at the Piatti
Foundation in Milan, knowing this would give Lodovico an opportunity to break in to academia.
There were only two candidates for the newly-vacant position: Lodovico and the teacher Zuanne da Coi. The choice was resolved in a public maths duel – of course – and Lodovico won easily. The twenty year-old servant is now a lecturer in geometry, feels a great debt to Jerome and is fiercely loyal to his cause.
Jerome and Lodovico work well together, researching new algebraic solutions to difficult problems. But still they cannot crack Tartaglia’s secret. Eventually, they decide on a more direct approach. They will ask Tartaglia to share his knowledge for the common good.
Aware of Tartaglia’s prickly reputation, Jerome and Lodovico enlist a local bookseller named Zuan Antonio as a go-between. He will convey Jerome’s carefully-phrased question to Tartaglia, and bring back the reply, with all communication directed to him as a third party.
