The latest volume of Materia Giudaica, an Italian journal of Jewish studies published by Mauro Perani, is available in full-text online. There are several articles that deal with interesting manuscripts, including one by Perani on a very early (9th century) Italian manuscript of the Midrash Tanhuma from Ravenna, and a copy of Menahem ben Saruq's Mahberet that is very similar to the twin manuscripts - Vatican 31 (Sifra, Vayikra Rabba and Seder Eliyahu Rabba) and Parma De Rossi 312 (Mishna). And a short piece by myself, with an acknowledgment to the amazing woman to whom I am now privileged to be married.
