Discorso di Camillo Palladini Bolognese sopra l'arte della scherma come l'arte della scherma è necessaria à chi si diletta d'arme ("Discourse by Camillo Palladini of Bologna on the art of fencing, as the art of fencing is necessary to whoever is delighted by arms"; MS 14/10) is an Italian fencing manual created by Camillo Palladini in ca. 1600.[citation needed] The original currently rests in the Howard de Walden Library of the Wallace Collection in London, United Kingdom. Palladini’s method of fencing demonstrates commonalities with a number of contemporary and near-contemporary treatises, presaging the methods of later Italian rapier masters, while conserving some elements of the earlier Bolognese school (for example cuts or beats with the false edge of the sword, and mentions of the older Bolognese guard names).

The treatise covers the sword alone, sword and dagger, sword and cloak, double swords, spadone, pike and halberd.
