dc.description.abstractGiovanni Rinaldini of Ancona was the first military engineer of note to have seriously examined the defence problems facing Gozo and to produce plans for the island’s initial fortification. He studied the art of fortification under Germanico Sovargnano and was working in Rome before coming over to Malta in March 1599. During his stay, Rinaldini carried out two field surveys of Gozo and authored two reports of significant professional value with accompanying plans and designs. Unfortunately, these plans and designs have been lost.en_GB
