Capo Ferro by NightmareGK13 Capo Ferro by NightmareGK13


So to kick off this project here is the first entry of the list. 

Master Ridolfo Capo Ferro as shown in the frontispiece of his rapier fencing treatise  "Gran Simulacro dell'Arte e dell'Uso della Scherma" (c.1610). 

(or as my friends call him - Tintin's evil twin)

According to Nick Thomas from the Academy of Historical Fencing, master Capo Ferro was 52 years old when his fencing treatise was published. 

As a student (and instructor of his work) it was only suited that I made my homage to the master whose work is so widely studied, interpreted and tought today. 

As a neat detail, you can see my name signed right before his with the roman date of 2017, if for some reason you can't read it
