Cultural Interest to Students of Bolognese Martial Arts

The period from which we obtain our training material is very narrow (roughly 1525 - 1575), but the items in list below represent a far more broad span than that, and extend to Italy in general, not just to Bologna, and at times to other places in Europe. There will be some links that are more related, and some less. This page is constantly being revised, so check back often.
