Italian manuscripts at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Bavarian State Library) - Cod.ital.

The codices italici (Cod.ital.) comprise just under 930 volumes from the 15th to 19th centuries. They are a rich source of the intellectual and cultural history of Italy and in particular of the papacy in the 16th to 18th centuries. The architectural antiquarian manuscript of Vitruvius, which also contains a letter from Raphael (1483-1520) to Pope Leo X. (Cod.ital. 37 a.b.c) deserves a special mention. The comedy "La Cortigiana" by Pietro Aretino (Cod.ital. 302) is textually interesting.
