[Autom. eng. transl.] The volume is ideally placed in the period of renewal of the epistolary studies which has seen, over the past five years, a considerable number of interventions, projects and publications. It is directly connected to one of these initiatives, not only because of the editorial office that hosts it, but for intrinsic reasons, since most of the studies presented here were born within the Archilet project, as a simple collaboration or, in a couple of cases, as an internship in the master's degree in modern philology at the Catholic University of Milan, therefore as a specialist training experience in scientific research. Moreover, the essays collected here are also intended as an outcome, not definitive, of course, but in itinere, of the work of cataloging the correspondence already merged or to be allocated to the digital archive. The analytical phase of registration and presentation of the letters in the database is followed by the historical-critical study or the edition of the same, as a natural and desirable corollary. The five chapters are arranged in chronological order occupying the century that from the mid-sixteenth century of the correspondence Beccadelli-Gualteruzzi reaches the fourth decade of the seventeenth century, captured through the letters of Fulvio Testi.
