Ramusio ‘editore’ del Milione

Samuela Simion    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



The contribution focuses on a scholarly digital project presented in 2015 by Eugenio Burgio, Marina Buzzoni and Antonella Ghersetti, Dei Viaggi di Messer Marco Polo, the Italian version of the Devisement dou monde/Milione by Giovanni Battista Ramusio (1559), freely available at Edizioni Ca’ Foscari - Digital Publishing website. The paper describes the intellectual reasons that have bolstered the project, in the new context provided by the so-called digital philology, and shows a demo that illustrates its operational mechanisms. Finally, it presents some outcomes of the project: (a) a new hypothesis of stemma codicum, which tries to explain the ways of transmission and the relationships between the two traditional branches α and β; (b) a new scholarly digital project: the critical edition of Marco Polo’s book, started out as the logical development of the ‘Ramusio digitale’.
