Manuscript SummaryThis paper manuscript, copied in Bellinzona in the middle of the 15th century, contains a series of decrees issued by the Visconti government for the municipal authorities between 1352 and 1443. At the end of the text, there are blank pages onto which were copied letters of exemption for the people of theVal Mesolcina (a valley in the Swiss Canton of Grisons), which were issued in the years 1498-1499. The manuscript belonged to the Varone family; in 1537 it was bought and restored by the Bellinzona notary Giovanni Giacomo Rusca. In the 17th century, Carlo Bernardino Zacconi donated the manuscript to the library of the Jesuits of Bellinzona, which was later taken over by the Benedictines, and around 1787 the manuscript came to the Abbey Library of Einsiedeln.
