A local history of the Italian town of Montalboddo. Begins with a preface of a poem (f. 1r) by Johannes Petri Pascutii to Gabatium (or Gabuzzi). The Cronica places the town of Montalboddo in the Senigallia region of Italy, near Ancona, and mostly speaks of the families Paganelli and Gabuzzi. It covers Montalboddo's history up to its inclusion in the Papal states after the death of Roberto de' Paganelli in 1454 (f. 8v). The final page lists various famous men from Montalboddo, dividing them by profession (such as doctors, lawyers, and men of letters). The manuscript closes with two poems: a translation of Christopher Funda of Forli's letter, Non aspecto gia mai cum tal disio, into a poem, and Funda's Carmen de Cerbero translato a comite Gabutio. Both poems refer to a Conte Gabuzzi (or Gabuzio). Contains marginal notes in a different hand.
