Santo Brasca

Santo Brasca (born 1444/1445, died after 1522) was an administrator and statesman in the Duchy of Milan under the Sforza. He went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1480 and wrote a detailed account of his travels, Vaggio del Santo Sepolcro. He borrowed from the writings of an earlier pilgrim, Gabriele Capodilista, to augment his own account.[1] He includes some practical advice for future pilgrims.[2]
