MSS Ravenna M-345 and 346 are an anonymous Italian fencing manual of the Bolognese tradition, probably written at the beginning of the 16th century.[citation needed] The original currently rests in the holdings of the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Roma in Rome, Italy. This manuscript is unique in that apart from the standard teachings of later Bolognese sources, it also treats the use of Medieval weapons and armor. Cesari and Rubboli speculate that it was written by Guido Antonio di Luca, the master who taught both Antonio Manciolino and Achille Marozzo, but this attribution has yet to receive popular support.

Stephen Fratus has picked up the gauntlet and produced a complete translation of the Anonimo. It will be some time before we can fully implement this translation here on the page, but you can download the full document here: Stephen Fratus translation.
