Cabinet 10: Italian Travel Books
The Vita di Cola di Rienzo is a combination of chapters 18, 23, 26 and 27 of an anonymous chronicle of the 14th century composed in a Roman dialect (dialetto romanesco). The chronicle exists in numerous manuscripts, all of which appear to be more or less imperfect and incorrect. In the first edition of the Vita the authorship is wrongly a scribed to Tommaso Fiortifiocca, whose name appears in some manuscripts.
