Newly Published: In Search of Aldus Pius Manutius a campo Sant’Agostin, by Johannes M. P. Knoops

Tuesday, August 13, 2019   (0 Comments)

In Search of Aldus Pius Manutius a campo Sant’Agostin outlines the allegation against the currently celebrated location of Aldus’s printing press on campo Sant’Agostin, while illustrating the true location in Venice. Denounced shortly after the commemorative plaque’s installation in 1828, historians have long questioned the site’s legitimacy. This is the first time the true location has been so clearly mapped and argued for. The book’s proposition was defended with a full-page article in Gazzettino, northern Italy’s daily newspaper. Ultimately, this publication led the offices of the Soprintendenza di Venezia and the Commune di Venezia to approve a new commemoration of Aldine Press's achievements at its proper location. Initiated 3 years ago, this Herculean quest will conclude with the installation of the Aldine stemma above its door in early 2020.
