A hitherto unpublished document in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana concerning the collections gathered by the sculptors Leone Leoni (1509–90) and his son Pompeo (c.1541–1608), in Milan and Madrid, respectively, enables identifications of some of the objects, clarifies details of their transport and subsequent ownership and offers some indications regarding how Leoni acquired such prestigious objects. The document contains two lists: one is an inventory of the objects in the Leoni residence in Milan and the other is a record of the contents of the Pompeo's house in Madrid which were to be transported to Milan.
