Trattato di Scientia d'Arme, con vn Dialogo di Filosofia ("Treatise on the Science of Arms, with a Dialogue on Philosophy") is an Italian fencing manual written by Camillo Agrippa and printed in 1553. It treats the use of the side sword in a revolutionary new method based on geometry, and was highly influential in the development of the Verdadera destreza as well as 17th century Italian rapier fencing.
Trattato di Scientia d'Arme, con vn Dialogo di Filosofia was printed in Rome in 1553 by Antonio Blado, identified as an "apostolic printer". It was reprinted by Antonio Pinargenti in 1568, and by Roberto Meglietti in 1604 and again in 1664.
In 2013, it was translated to English by W. Jherek Swanger and self-published under the title A Treatise on the Science of Arms, with a Philosophical Dialogue, by Camillo Agrippa.
