Paulo Manuzio

  • son of the famous venetian printer Aldo Manuzio
  • Father of Aldo Manuzio the Younger
  • according to Andreas Schott SJ in [Agustín 1765: I, XVIII] regular guest in Agustín's house in Rome: "Cum enim domicilium Romæ Antonius haberet, pontificiarum caussarum judex aequissimus,& quasi rerum ac fortunarum suarum sedem ibi, si arbitratu suo perpetuo vivere licuisset, horis subsecivis, quibus a negotiis publicis laxamenti aliquid dabatur ad corporis animique relaxationem, cum eruditissimis hominibus, qui domum ejus assidue discendi gratia frequentabant, Octavio Pantagatho, Gabriele Faerno, Bafilio Zancho, Onuphrio Panvinio, Pyrrho Ligorio, Paulo Manutio Aldi F. Carolo Sigonio, & qui hodie vivunt, Latino Latinio & Fulvio Ursino, Metello item Sequano, qui XI. ipsòs annos in illius, contubernio jucundissime vixit, cæterisque domi suae, quæ illis oraculum, verius Delphico, esse videbatur, de urbis Romæ antiquitatibus, inscriptionibus, numismatis, rerum gestarum memoria, & scriptoribus antiquis Græcis atque Latinis, omnique adeo philologia & interioribus litteris libenter disserebat, & inftar apis undique decerpebat, quibus Spartam, quod ajunt, illustraret suam."
  • published Daniele Barbaro's commentary on Porphyrius in 1542; from his forword it is clear that he knew Barbaro well.
  • dedicated his "De legibus" (part of the planned books on Roman Antiquitatis) to Ippolito d'Este. The intention to publish such a work seems to go back (according to the dedication) to Pietro Bembo († 1547) and Bernardino Maffei.
