Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze

A second manuscript, an exact copy of the Münster original is held in the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze. (Mus 338).  This manuscript is undated and is titled:

‘Concerti a quattro Per Tre Soprani, e Contralto
Di Monsignor Antonio Reggio’

 
The manuscript is the only document, found so far, that mentions Reggio as monsignor. It was part of the private collection of Professor Giancarlo Rostirolla in Rome. This was originally part of the collection of the Roman 19th century bibliophile Ipolitto Galente. At the final decline of Latin, after World War II, an Italian diplomat, Ippolito Galante, write his Saniucta (Rome, 1957) which probably will remain for ever the last epic poem written in Latin
