Summary:
Large, mid-18th-century compilation of records on 2 subjects: first, manuscript and printed texts on the reclamation (bonificazione) of the Pontine Marshes (Paludi Pontine) and the cutting of the forests of Sermoneta and Cisterna di Latina, and second, mostly manuscript records of the Maestri delle Strade or Congregazione delle Strade, the municipal body in charge of the streets of Rome, and particularly of Pietro Millini, one of the Maestri delle Strade. The materials on the Pontine Marshes range from 16th-century manuscripts (f. 3r-19v), to 3 engraved maps from the late 17th and 18th centuries (f. 145r, 184r, 333r), to substantial printed texts from the 18th century. 2 texts printed ca. 1715, which present arguments about the cutting of the forests of Sermoneta and Cisterna di Latina, have parchment finding tabs (f. 146r, 307r) that correspond to a partial table of contents at the beginning of the volume (f. 1r-1v), which notes that the 2 items are related. The records of the Maestri delle Strade are a group of late 17th-century manuscripts in the middle of the volume (f. 185r-306v) including correspondence, reports of street inspections (many signed by the architects Pietro Andrea Bufalini and Tomasso Zanoli), and a single printed edict (f. 233r).
