Pede Certo is a new digital tool for the automatic metrical annotation of Latin hexameters and pentameters. The 'metrical search engine' was applied to the digital archive [http://www.mqdq.it Musisque Deoque]: the more than 244.000 dactylic verses of Latin poetry from its origins to VII century AD are analysed from a prosodic perspective. The site offers many possible options for discovering the use of dactylic meters in the Latin Poetry. Last but not least, it is also possible to use the 'metrical tool' on dactylic verses out of the native database.
At the moment the site is available only in italian.

SUPPORT ON METRE
Pede Certo is program for the automatic analysing of Latin verses developed by the Università di Udine as part of the Traditio patrum FIRB project. Its application to the Musisque Deoque digital archive – containing Latin poetry texts from the archaic period to the 7th century AD – has enabled the scansion of approximately 244,000 dactylic verses.
On this site, a specifically developed search engine that draws upon the results of the scansion may be used to conduct metrical investigations of the corpus, through a variety of approaches.
