Trattato in Materia di Scherma ("Treatise on Matters of Defense") is an Italian fencing manual written by Marco Docciolini and printed in 1601. It treats the use of the side sword, both alone and with secondary weapons, and is similar enough to the 15th century writings of Francesco di Sandro Altoni to suggest the existence of a distinct Florentine fencing style.
Trattato in Materia di Scherma was first published in Florence, Italy, in 1601 by Michelagnolo Sermartelli.
