"Boat Mill, Veranzio, Machinae Novae"

Faustus Veranzius, 1571-1617, (also known as Veranzio) was a polymath and bishop from Šibenik, then part of the Venetian Republic and today part of Croatia. He published 'Machinae novae' in 1616, just before his death, describing his inventions. Some of Verantius’ inventions are applicable to the solution of hydrological problems, for example, the project for preventing the Tiber from overflowing its banks at Rome and that of providing Venice with fresh water. Others concern the construction of clepsydras, sundials, mills, presses, and bridges and boats destined for widely different uses.
