Abstract


Giovanni Battista Bonagente from Vicenza was a physician attached to the Venetian consulate in Cairo from 1634 to 1641. Thought he did not leave a diary, he partially narrated his Egyptian experience in the letters he sent to his uncle, Gianbattista Benasutti. The unpublished correspondance between Bonagente and Benasutti is investigated by the present paper.
