Napoli [Birdâ€™s-eye panoramic view of Naples and its port]. Tempera on canvas.
Pronosticatio in latino rara & prius non audita: quae exponit & declarat nonnullos coeli influxus: & inclinationem certarum constellationum magne videlicet coniunctionis & eclipsis: quae fuerant istis annis: quid boni malive hoc tempore & in futurum huic mundo portendant: Durabitque pluribus annis

My main fields of interest are manuscripts, incunabula and 16th century books. A thorough understanding of classical languages (particularly Latin) and of the main languages of Western culture (English, Italian, French, Spanish and German) allows us to deal with books and to utilize the scientific publications printed in these languages. After graduating in classical studies at the University of Bologna, I have deepened my knowledge in the field of antiquarian books, attending courses at the Ã‰cole de l'Institut d'Histoire du Livre of Lyon, concerning physical bibliography and printing types, and at Merton College in Oxford on the study of paper. I have been for several years committee member and treasurer of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of Italy and, from 2010 to 2015, its president. I am currently a member of the ILAB's committee and the secretary to the Breslauer prize for bibliography.
