The Complete Renaissance Swordsman: Antonio Manciolino’s Opera Nova (1531)

Antonio Manciolino published his treatise Opera Nova in , and this edition is the one available to us today. The title page informs us that this edition is newly corrected and printed, which indicates there may have been an earlier now lost version. Thus we can date the original manual to sometime between September and September The system as described in his text is a remarkably concise and complete description of how to use the weapons combinations that he elaborates for his fencing system. Sword and buckler is the core foundation weapons system for the early Dardi School. The primary teaching instruction for both Manciolino and Marozzo, the two earliest Dardi School authors, is done through the sword and small buckler assaulti, with the more martial instruction being identified as the plays with a sharp sword, which includes the material concerning the large buckler and the targa. The introduction also elucidates the 10 guardie he favours, followed by the typical offences and defences from these guardie.


Opera Nova

Bolognese Swordsmanship , also sometimes known as the Dardi school , is a tradition within the Italian school of swordsmanship which is based on the surviving fencing treatises published by several 16th century fencing masters of Bologna , [1] As early as the 14th century several fencing masters were living and teaching in the city: a maestro Rosolino in , a maestro Nerio in , and a maestro Francesco in The Dardi school is named after Lippo Bartolomeo Dardi, a professor of mathematics and astronomy at the University of Bologna , who was licensed as a fencing master and founded a fencing school in Bologna in , just a few years after Fiore dei Liberi had completed his Fior di Battaglia. The Dardi School constituted both the last great medieval Western martial arts tradition as well as the first great Renaissance tradition, embracing both armed and unarmed combat. No manuscript ascribed to Dardi himself survives, although his tradition became the foundation for the work of Antonio Manciolino and Achille Marozzo , both possibly students of famed Bolognese master Guido Antonio de Luca.
