Abstract

The biography and the works of Ferdinando Zannetti, physician, surgeon, politician and outstanding figure in nineteenth-century Tuscany acquire new light through the organisation and inventorying of the papers from his archive. The history of medicine and surgery of this period is enriched by new data, making it possible to enter into the daily exercise of the profession. The evidence of Zannetti as a military doctor and organiser of the health service during the wars of independence also offers a fascinating new slant on the history of the Risorgimento. The political life of Florence and Tuscany are relived in the framework of the laborious construction of the new State.

Abstract

The "Medici Project" – launched in 2004 – comprises a palaeopathological study of the corpses of the Medici buried in the Medici Chapels. The exhumations which took place in the past have altered the original state of the sepulchres, frequently compromising their conservation. Through the study of archive documents and iconographic material, this book is offered as a contribution to the contextualisation of these operations, and represents not only a starting-point for further investigations, but a fundamental working tool for the "Medici Project" itself.

Abstract

In 1840, a French alienist, or psychiatrist, Joseph Guillaume Desmaisons Dupallans, visited a number of Italian asylums with the objective of discovering the best solution for the institute he was planning to set up in the vicinity of Bordeaux. This book comprises an Italian translation of the notes he made on this trip, conserved in a manuscript in the library of the former psychiatric hospital of San Salvi (Florence). Offering an extremely precise and detailed review of the structures visited, the work is a fascinating and important source for the reconstruction of the history of the institutes for the insane in Italy and also for the history of psychiatry itself.
