Tra edizione e archivio. La tecnologia al servizio della filologia (Article)
Title: Tra edizione e archivio. La tecnologia al servizio della filologia
Author: H. Wayne Storey
Abstract: This essay examines the complex relationships between the digital (especially TEI and mark-up languages) and the practice of philology, especially material philology. Taking as its model the ongoing rich-text edition of Petrarch's Rerum vulgarium fragmenta in the Petrarchive.org Project, Storey discusses especially the issues of: overdetermination in mark-up strategies, the treatment of the uses of space in medieval manuscripts and in Petrarch's VL3195, and the representation of authorial variants and palimpsests (http://www.ecdotica.org/pdf/2014/storey.pdf).

La politica e l’antigrafo del FRAGMENTORUM LIBER (Chigiano L V 176) (Article)
Title: La politica e l’antigrafo del FRAGMENTORUM LIBER (Chigiano L V 176)
Author: H. Wayne Storey
Abstract: This study examines the critical politics in Petrarchan studies and construction of Boccaccio's transcription (ca 1362) of the first extant form of Petrarch's Fragmenta, the Fragmentorum liber in MS Vatican Library Chigiano L V 176. Through a close study of the variants and emendations in Boccaccio's transcription and the "first project" copied probably by Giovanni Malpaghini (1367–1368), Storey establishes the probability of a common antegraph that was shared by Boccaccio and then emended by Petrarch for Malpaghini's supervised transcription.

The Legacy of Petrarch's Chartae (Book Section)
Title: The Legacy of Petrarch's Chartae
Author: H. Wayne Storey
Editor: Ernesto Livorni and Jelena Todorovic
Abstract: This essay examines the new critical orientation of the charta (manuscript page) and its writing canvas of 31 transcriptional lines employed in both Petrarch's supervised copy of the Rerum vulgarium fragmenta (Vatican Library Latino 3195) and in the rich-text editions of the Petrarchive.org Project. Storey traces Petrarch's strategies in the distribution of text in all five of the work's poetic genres (sonnet, ballata, madrigal, sestina and canzone) in the Rvf. From this material basis, the author demonstrates the utility of studying the work from both the point of view of the manuscript page, the conjunct leaves of the bifolium, and the collective textuality of the gathering (or fascicle).

I codici paralleli dei Fragmenta (Article)
Title: I codici paralleli dei Fragmenta
Author: Isabella Magni
Abstract: This essay examines the strict correlation between literary-philological and digital codices that share numerous connections in their textual representations. The specific case of Francesco Petrarca's "Rerum vulgarium fragmenta" is here examined together with its complex early manuscript tradition requiring innovative encoding in the creation of a new digital code ("the Petrarchive Project"). The essay proposes to answer two basic questions: How do we represent digitally the 'code' of the hand-written manuscript? What are the strategies we can use to respond digitally to the intricate visual and prosodic structures of Petrarch's work?

The Evolving Fragmenta: Editing An Imperfect Holograph (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: The Evolving Fragmenta: Editing An Imperfect Holograph
Author: H. Wayne Storey
Abstract: This presentation offers a rationale for the two types of textual representation in Petrarch's partially holograph manuscript of the Rerum vulgarium fragmenta: Vatican Library Latino 3195. Delineating between the project's first and completed sections (cc. 1-38 and 53-60) and its unfinished, experimental section (cc. 39–52 and 60-72), Storey examines the need to treat the two sections of the manuscript as two editorially distinguishable units that have to be edited with different methods.

The Revisualization of an Icon of European Literature: Petrarch’s Rerum vulgarium fragmenta (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: The Revisualization of an Icon of European Literature: Petrarch’s Rerum vulgarium fragmenta
Author: H. Wayne Storey
Abstract: The Petrarchive editions' orientations to the texts of the Rerum vulgarium fragmenta are founded principally on heretofore un-noted difference between the fair-copy parts of MS Vatican Latino 3195 and the service- or experimental sections of the MS after the work was rubricated in the summer of 1368. The distinction between these two sections is pivotal in the application methodological innovations in Storey and Walsh's rich-text editions.

Petrarch, his son-in-law and a hidden codex of the Rerum vulgarium fragmenta (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Petrarch, his son-in-law and a hidden codex of the Rerum vulgarium fragmenta
Abstract: This lecture presented the results of NEH research on the early manuscript tradition of Petrarch's Rerum vulgarium fragmenta (Rvf) for the Petrarchive's rich-text editions @petrarchive.org. The presentation focused on the re-discovery of a later copy of a much earlier codex that represented an intermediary form of the Rvf between the original antegraph revised by Petrarch for Malpaghini and the experimental addenda in Petrarch's MS Vatican Latino 3195.
