CRITICAL ESSAY

Within the context of the undoubtedly extensive literature on this sector, the essay Luca Pacioli’s Chess is worthy of being included amongst the most innovative, thanks to the unpublished nature of the manuscript De Ludo Scachorum, (Coronini Cronberg Archive. Biblioteca “chess game” library, ms. mm. 160x115, cc. 48,XV sec., collocation n. 7955), on which it is based. The book critically analyzes the original work and credits authorship to the great Renaissance mathematician, a student of Piero della Francesca and close friend of Leonardo. Closely associated with the facsimile reproduction of Pacioli’s work, the book is the result of the contributions of leading experts in the chess-playing and palaeographic-linguistic areas who discuss complex subjects such as the historic profile of chess, the phases of recovery, the transcription of the manuscript, the attribution of authorship and the chess technique used by Pacioli. To the traditional rules he added those of the a la rabiosa technique. One hundred and fourteen entries, with the detailed transcription of the individual “decisions” and the resolution of chess problems, complete the contents of the book.
