august 06 2021

Happy Summer holidays!

After such a difficult period for us all, the Manuscript Area of ICCU wishes happy holidays to all cataloguers and users of Manus Online.

We also propose you a beautiful image from c. 2v of the manuscript Castiglioni 5 (XV century), preserved in the Braidense Library of Milan, representing three ships sailing to faraway lands: in fact, the text in the manuscript tells us about the journey to Jerusalem of Niccolò da Poggibonsi, who is also the author of the text itself.
