This study focuses on the miscellaneous codex G 275 inf., which is kept in the Ambrosiana Library of Milan. This codex contains more than fifty Italian and Latin documents which pertain to the 1551-1552 Hapsburg campaigns – guided by the famous captain Giovanni Battista Castaldo – against the Turks in Hungary and in Transylvania. These documents were often written on behalf of important historical characters - such as Ferdinand I Hapsburg, Queen Elisabeth of Hungary, and Giovanni Battista Castaldo -, but the codex also contains copies of military instructions, notes, noblemen lists, etc. Therefore, the aim of this study is to present the extraordinary cultural heritage handed down by this manuscript in order to improve the knowledge of the XVI century Hungarian history.
