About This Item

VENETIA: APPRESSO DAMIAN ZENARO, 1595. Interessante opera del 1595 sulla storia dell'Ungheria scritta dal notaio veneziano Giovanni Nicolo Doglioni (1548-1629). Doglioni perse la sua famiglia durante l'epidemia di peste del 1576. Si ritirò a vita privata e scrisse storie di Venezia, Belluno e quest'opera, considerata come la prima storia moderna dell'Ungheria. L'autore inizia con la descrizione del paese, il clima, gli abitanti e la lingua. Prosegue con la storia a partire dalla sua occupazione da parte dei romani, gli unni nel IV secolo e l'invasione dei magiari per concludersi con la battaglia di Giurgevo nel 1595 quando Sigimondo Bathery principe di Transilvania venne sconfitto dall'Impero Ottomano. L'opera è in particolare apprezzata per l'accurata descrizione delle campagne turche nel XVI secolo. Subito dopo la carta b4 la mappa ripiegata dell'Ungheria di Girolamo Porro, cartografo ben conosciuto per aver lavorato con Ruscelli e Porcacchi.
