The map has been reproduced and cited in hundreds of books, but the most recent full study was in 1806: Placido Zurlas Il mappamondo di Fra Mauro.

In 1956 a facsimile edition on 46 sheets, accompanied by the transcription of the whole corpus of inscriptions (about 3000), was published. The present study aims at an analysis and an in-depth study of this important document, offering the reader an understanding within its contemporary cultural framework. The project was born from the co-operation between historians and scholars belonging to two Venetian institutions, the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana - where the map is still preserved - and the Centre for Survey and Cartography (CIRCE) of the Istituto Universitario di Architettura.

The work is in two parts, a volume of studies and a CD-ROM.
