Two early 16th-century manuscripts of the Trivulzio family’s private library in Milan, MSS Triv.
2079 and Triv. 2096, transmit works composed by Arcangelo Madrignani and Francesco Scauro and
dedicated to Gian Giacomo Trivulzio (1440-1518). Both MSS appear to have been written by the
Milanese copyist Giovanni Battista Lorenzi and are to be added to the corpus of manuscripts attributed
to his hand by Albinia de la Mare and Jonathan J.G. Alexander. Moreover two parchment documents
held in the Archivio di Stato of Milan (Diplomi e dispacci sovrani, Milano, cart. 9, s. d. and Cimeli,
cart. 1, c 20, 1 oct. 1511) are here identified as written by the same copyist. In 1515 Lorenzi was
a secretary of Massimiliano Sforza.
