Here is the fantasia called "con misure di  restringement"  This fantasia takes its name from a passage towards the end in which the "Marco Motive" is heard three-fold, each with shorter phrase lengths, "shrinking measures," so to speak.  It appears at a concluding section, dynamicaly rounding out the movement.  I've never seen anything like this in lute music, but with Marco it comes not as a surprise, given his fascination with rhythmic and metrical effects. See measures 110-142, and the précise at the end.
