The article examines and comments on the sources concerning the study and tech- ing of music, both on theoretical and practical side, at the school of Vittorino da Feltre during the ’30s of the xv Century. Then, it focuses on the fact that one im- portant Greek manuscript containing a corpus of musicological texts was present in the library of the school at that time. Moreover, at least two copies were drawn from it in the same period, and one of them contains an incredibly huge amount of marginalia dealing with technical aspects of the discipline, by the hand of Gian Pietro da Lucca, one of the Vittorino’s pupil. A new attention is given to a passage of the De Victorini Feltrensis vita atque disciplina by Sassolo da Prato, another of the Vittorino’s students, who clearly draws most of his information from the the Plutarchan De musica, one of the texts contained in the manuscript(s) available in the school. These data testify for an intense scholarly activity on ancient Greek musico- logical texts well before the end of the xv Century.
