Petrarca negli zibaldoni di cancelleria

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Petrarch in the stationery zibaldoni

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] There were numerous occasions when Petrarch found himself acting as chancellor and diplomat and composed letters and prayers in this function, particularly in the years he spent in Milan (1353-1361). Some miscellanies of 'exempla epistolarum', put together in the Visconti domain, collect letters from Petrarch along with those of some chancellors, first of all Salutati. The article provides a detailed description of three manuscripts of this type: Milan, Biblioteca Ambrosiana, P 256 sup .; Verbania, State Archive, Zibaldone cancelleresco (without signature); Bellinzona, Ticino Historical Archive, Several 150, increasing an exhibition previously inaugurated with the analysis of seven manuscripts.
