Special Issue "Vincenzo Scamozzi: Lektüren eines gelehrten Architekten"
Guest-edited by Rüdiger Hoyer
These papers derive from a colloquium held at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich (ZI). The occasion was a new acquisition for the ZI's library: a volume of the first complete edition of Sebastiano Serlio's "Books on Architecture" (Venice 1551) annotated by Vincenzo Scamozzi (1548-1616). The copy is one of the very few surviving annotated books from Scamozzi, who is known for his broad erudition. It is a first-rate art-historical source that has remained unknown until now and provides direct insight into Scamozzi's working methods.
