Condition Report

Nice edition. The work of the priest Agucchi from Bologna aims to glorify and exalt the city of Bologna, where we find the ancient Trojan origins of the city, the Etruscan influence and its growing importance as an Etruscan city and as a promoter of an area as vast as that of Emilia. Agucchi, a man of letters, a member of the Accademia dei Gelati, in Bologna, was also a lover of mathematics and astronomy, but demonstrated with this work a good historical culture.
