The information we have on <Bondì of Mazo> are highly uncertain . In the Bibliography military <D'Ayala> is registered in the book of <Bondì Mazo> and nothing more.

Maybe <Bondì> alteration of <Abbondio> ( Ughi writes in the Journal of the Scholars and the Curious p. 195 , n . 57 , 1884 ) , family name Venetian cittadinesca , however if the stock is < Mazo > may belong to the family <Maggi> , also called <Mazzi> or <dei Mazi> .

In zibaldoni dell'Ughi is in fact the memory of a family or <Bondì> <Buondì> , of Mantua, where he was born that <Vincenzo Bondì> , Doctor in Venice in the sixteenth century , the author of various translations . So it could also be admitted that the author of the Treaty of fencing is descended from the illustrious doctor .

The Stork, in a note to the brand new Library Venetian <Giampaolo Gaspari> , Diche the <Bondì of Mazo> was jew . And it will be deducted from a kind of horoscope circumstances of the work of <Bondì Mazo> , engraved in copper with Hebrew characters, and even a sonnet in praise of Grace Venetian Jewish priest .

L'Illustre abbot <Perrau> , p. 297 Journal of the aforementioned , it also believes that it <Bondì of Mazo> jew . <Bondì> Is the version of IOM Tov ( good morning, good day) name common to many Jews . The Jewish family <Majo> , <Mayo> or <Mazo> lived in Venice. Well known is the rabbi <Mosè Majo well Jakob-ha-Levi> of said city . When <Mosè Majo> etc. . , Died , was published in Venice (1708 ), a poem in praise of the extinct Jewish ( truly worthy , very worthy ) and in comparison to the survivors , titled: Goblet of Consolations ( Cus Tanchumim ) consisting of <Josef David-ha-Levi> well .
