In my research, I came across Orfeo Bosselli’s Osservationi della scultura antica. According to art historian Estelle Lingo, it is the only Renaissance treaty entirely dedicated to the sculptural representation of drapery. To this day, Bosselli’s Osservationi only exists as a 1978 limited facsimile edition of the original 1650 Italian manuscript. This project consists of typing (deciphering) the original Italian text, and to translate it using a Machine Translation software.
