Archivio Cavagna Sangiuliani in Zelada

The "Archivio Cavagna Sangiuliani in Zelada" consists of nearly sixty linear feet of manuscript and printed documents, including prints, maps and land surveys, limited correspondence, ephemera, and photographs. Arranged alphabetically by place name, and chronologically by content, the bulk of the archive—"Carte storico-diplomatiche"—pertains to the local history of northern Italian towns and cities, including family histories, legal instruments, investitures, wills, diplomas, charters, leases, and papal bulls. Many manuscripts are original documents, with the oldest dating from 1116; however, the majority of the manuscripts are authentic copies, often notarized, or simple copies transcribed directly from originals held in Italian archives.
