The genius of Sanvito

Bartolomeo Sanvito (1435-1511) was born and died in Padua. He constantly moved between Rome and Padua. His work is a great example of the Paduan script that became the model for the regular minuscule that is so familiar to us nowadays.

I was thinking of making three entries about Sanvito, but will do only one long one, as this information is slightly out of the scope of this blog.

1500 Virgil, Bucolica, Georgica and Aeneid.
