Description

The Trivulziano codex 1088 is a paper volume from the end of the 14th century. Perhaps of Paduan origin, it contains assembled together Dante's De vulgari eloquentia and Albertino Mussato's Erinis. The unadorned appearance of the specimen conceals one of the three most significant codes of the manuscript tradition of De vulgari eloquentia, whose history is intertwined with the complex 'question of language'. Rediscovered by Gian Giorgio Trissino shortly before 1513, the Trivulziano 1088 was in fact the fundamental tool through which the humanist spread the knowledge of Dante's treatise in Florence and Rome. In the following centuries the codex lay neglected in the Venetian convent of Santa Maria della Salute, until it reappeared in 1817 in the library of Gian Giacomo Trivulzio, from which it was read with passionate linguistic interest together with his friend Vincenzo Monti, before reaching us through the collections of the illustrious Milanese family.


This work, belonging to the permanent collection, is open to the public for conservation reasons only on the occasion of temporary exhibitions.
