Re: VMs: Prague and Italy


Thanks for that. I had already traced an artist called Barozzi
that was commissioned by Rudolph II and delivered a painting
to Prague. The architect Barozzi never left Italy AFAICT. What
I really need to find out is a connection between the Barozzi's
and the Sternberg's in Bohemia. I have a partial family tree
(thanks to the reminder from jean :-) of the Sternbergs, but so
far have found no direct Italian link. I found an old post from
Dana Scott on the same subject of Barocius/Barozzi. Was
anything gleaned from that?

I really don't know if this is going anywhere but it is a
continuation of Jan Hurych and Jean-yves initial work on this.
I think it may be important, but then who the hell am I to say?
