- About this book
The volume first part deals with Aleotti’s versatile figure, reporting his unpublished treatises on hydraulics, fortifications, artillery, musical theory, and with Ferrara’s cultural environment of that time. The second part concerns studies on applied mathematics in Tuscany, Venice, Mantua and other Italian regions, between the XVI and XVII centuries. An appendix including a list of Aleotti’s printed works and manuscripts, as well as his chronology and his bibliography, concludes the volume.
