The heraldry collection of the Library is made up of 1.200 published works with a card catalogue of heraldry bibliography arranged alphabetically by author and title.

One of most important works is the Bartolo da Sassoferrato De insignis et Armis (two editions: 1550 and 1579).

Very important is even the manuscript material of the collection.
It consists of 150 codices; the collection was ordered during the 1940's by the Librarian Gabriele Moricca.
Now there is a new complete catalogue of manuscripts.
