Abstract

During the seveenteenth century the Merlo family worked in Verona as official printers. Their success began in 1606 when Bartolomeo Merlo inherited the printing bussiness of Francesco Dalle Donne, one of the mail Veronese printers of the previous century. The majority of the publications appearing under the name Merlo comprised laws and regulations commissioned by the Veronese authorities, a monopoly which explains how the firm managed to survive into the eighteenth century. Their fortunes declined in the second half of that century, when the authorities were no longer obliged to use official printers for their administrative publications
