0058 Scamozzi kommentiert Serlio
This article presents briefly the Serlio-copy of 1551 with the glosses of Scamozzi which the Ernst von Siemens Foundation has acquired for the library of the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte. A detailed commentary on it is in preparation. We present the realia of the volume and the glosses in the context of the other known glosses of Scamozzi and the editions of Serlio's books by Scamozzi, and indicate what the remarks contribute to our knowledge of Scamozzi's work. Then, with the Theatre of Marcellus as the main example, we focus on explaining the content of the glosses in relation to the studies of antiquity and architectural theory of Serlio and Scamozzi. In that way, new aspects of Scamozzi's studies and Venetian architectural theory as a whole, resulting from the glosses, come to the fore.
