Infinite Numbers and Measures: The Longsword of Philippo di Vadi

This workshop will explore the fundamental principles of the longsword, as dictated by the Pisan Master of Arms Vadi in his 1480s masterpiece, De Arte Gladiatoria Dimicandi. Arguably the first true Renaissance fencing manuscript written, albeit during the last vestiges of medieval society, Vadi’s work is revolutionary in the evolution of fencing as a science.
