<title> RIASSUNTO </title>È stato recentemente identificato un gruppo di 11 astrolabi tedeschi cinquecenteschi. Gli strumenti sono stati esaminati uno per uno, con particolare attenzione alle incisioni e alle caratteristiche costruttive, giungendo alla conclusione che essi provengono da una, forse due botteghe. Dove queste si trovassero non è ancora chiaro, ma certamente l'astrolabio più antico, datato 1457, proviene da Vienna.Uno degli astrolabi è particolarmente importante: presentato a Roma nel 1462, è dedicato al cardinale Basilio Bessarione (1404-1472), patriarca latino di Costantinopoli dal 1463, illustre studioso greco e promotore della ripresa degli studi umanistici nel XV secolo.L'astrolabio fu presentato dal grande astronomo Johannes Regiomontanus (1436-1476), protetto da Bessarione per il quale scrisse dedicandogliela una Epitome (1462) dell'Almagesto di Tolomeo.
