abstract

The aim of this paper is to propose a new and updated description of a manuscript named Conventi soppressi C.VII.1170, which hands down a Latin version of Marco Polo’s Milion made by Francesco Pipino of Bologna OP. The Conventi soppressi manuscript is a significant witness of the text for its antiquity, the elegance of its making, and the authority of its production. The codicological analysis allows to clarify numerous doubts (or to address several open questions) about the manufacture of the manuscript and the meaning of the iconography. Furthermore, it allows to discover new palaeographic elements that identify a rewriting intervention. Therefore, the set of features related to the making of the manuscript suggests an overview about the social and historical context of its production, where the consideration of a book as an object is related to its practical function.
