  • printer, in Rome active, among others for the Accademia della Virtù / Accademia Romana
  • In 1539 Marcello Cervini commissioned Blado in addition to his activities for the Accademia, to print the Greek manuscripts of the Vatican Library: [Layton 1994: 29–30]. Because Blado had no Greek type face letters, he went to Venice to consult Paolo Manuzio, following Cervini's advice. Among the works published in this cooperation are those of St. Gregor from Nazianz, which may establish an additional connection to Gregor XIII and the Cappella Gregoriana, one of the first re-creations of ancient Roman decoration.
