Dell'Arte di Scrima Libri Tre ("Three Books on the Art of Defense") is an Italian fencing manual written by Giovanni dall'Agocchie and published in 1572. It treats the use of the side sword, both single and with secondary weapons, after the Bolognese fashion and represents a shift in the system toward a more thrust-oriented style.
Dell'Arte di Scrima Libri Tre was published in Venice in 1572 by G. Tamborino. A second edition may have been published in 1580.
An English translation was prepared by Jherek Swanger and self-published in 2018 under the title The Art of Defense: on Fencing, the Joust, and Battle Formation, by Giovanni dall’Agocchie.
