About Scacchis
This website has started in 2005. It provides an overview of all kinds of chess cultural books and movies. All these titles are in my possession, so I can recommend them to you.

This website has been named after the nimph from the chess poem Scacchia ludus by Marcus Hieronymus Vida. This poem was created around 1525 and was the source of inspiration for the more famous but less original chess poem Caïssa by Sir William Jones from 1763.
