**Giorgio Valla**(1447-1500) was an Italian academic, mathematician, and translator, noted for []Overview

In c.1490, Valla began to acquire and secure a number of high-valued Greek science manuscripts, such as a copy of Archimedes Codex A, Ptolemy’s Almagest, and works by Euclid. (Ѻ)

In 1501, Valla, in his posthumous

*De Expetendis de fugiendis Rebus Opus*, supposedly presented some of the early pages of Hero’s*Pneumatica*; and at least partial translations (Ѻ) of Hero’s*Pneumatica*date back to the 12th century. [3]Quotes | On

The following are quotes on Valla:

“The first book of Cardano'sDe subtilitate(1550) was devoted to the general principles of ‘matter, form, vacuum, the repulsion of bodies, natural motion, and place’; his discussion of the various devices that some claim prove the existence of the vacuum are derived in part fromValla. But Cardano must have had a source beyond Valla, since he described a machine that Valla had omitted (Pneumatica1.37). Elio Nenci, Cardano's modern editor, suggested that he also relied on the preliminary discussion of the vacuum omitted by Valla, but I see no evidence of that—Cardano never mentions theinterparticulate vacuum, for instance.”— Roy Laird (2017), “Hero of Alexandria and Renaissance Mechanics” [2]
