  • [Nuovo 2013: 418–419] "Tramezino's name crops up constantly in the letters of Annibal Caro (as do those of Paolo Manuzio and Antonio Blado)[Fn. 60: The opening scene of Gli straccioni, a comedy by Annibal Caro, is set in Antonio Blado's Rome shop.] as a dependable intermediary for sending correspondence between Rome and Venice , and Rome and Naples. Tramezino was also a trusted interlocutor in linguistic questions, more or less openly soliciting written works and commissions to print new and commercial promising works. [Fn. 61: ]. Tramezino had made his Roman shop an important meeting place for scholares, who talked above all about history and archaeology, freely comparing observations and notes taken during walks in the city among the monumental ruins of ancient Rome.[Fn. 62: Franz Ehrle, Roma al tempo di Giulio III: La pianta di Roma di Leonardo Bufalini del 1551 (Roma: Danesi, 1911) 27–28] That daily scene may also have contributed to Tramezino's intensive production of commerce in maps and views of ancient Rome. [Fn. 63: Tinto, Annali, xxiv–xxvi.] Georg Fabricius records discussions of this sort that took place in Tramezino's and Antonio || Salamanca's shops, and he remembers with gratitude the open discussions he had with other scholars there. [Fn. 64: Georg Fabricius of Chemnitz, Roma Antiquitatum Libro Duo, Basel: I. Oporinus, 1551), 9.]
