Abstract

The Stanze della Moda project has set up an Observatory with the purpose of economic and management monitoring of the fabric of the Florentine companies through a marketing and research workshop. The analysis of several major international retailers demonstrates the emergence of a successful business model which, albeit in some respects idiosyncratic and difficult to transfer, represents an innovative stimulus for companies in the sector that want to redefine their competitiveness in the face of the altered market conditions. The focus on the Florentine companies delineates the ways in which the local manufacturers intercept the purchasing channels of major retail, creating a mediated form of sales on the international markets.

Abstract

This book explores the co-development of political, social, economic, and artistic networks of Florentines working in the Kingdom of Hungary during the reign of Sigismund of Luxembourg. The social network of these politicians, merchants, artisans, royal officers, dignitaries of the Church, and noblemen is the primary focus of the book. Local Florentines constituted an extended network of "friends"; the existing personal connections among them were defined by common political interests, neighborhood proximity, marriage alliances, kinship ties, patronage, and company partnership. Through analysis of the links between these actors, the book addresses questions of the complexity of social ties in early Renaissance Florence, exploring how multiple types of networks shaped the dynamics of public and private spheres. It also seeks to reach more general conclusions about Florentine migration abroad and to envision ways in which early modern migratory groups were formed.

Abstract

The correspondence between Renato Fucini and Emilia Peruzzi, which embraces a period of time comprised between 1871 and 1899, provides a colourful picture of late nineteenth-century Florentine and Italian society. Parading before our eyes are leading figures from Italian political and literary circles, such as Sonnino, Pareto, De Amicis and Ada Negri, who were part of the prestigious entourage that gravitated around the Peruzzi salon. The letters contained in the book throw new light on the personality of Fucini, while at the same time elucidating the biographical details of his life which are still little known and studied.

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

« À bon cheval et à mauvais cheval il faut l’éperon ; à bonne femme et à mauvaise femme il faut un maître, et à certaines du bâton. » Ce proverbe, cité par Paolo da Certaldo, un Florentin du XIVe siècle, révèle une société où les femmes demeurent dans un état de subordination permanent dont témoignent, en effet, les livres de raison de ses compatriotes. Cette étude de l’ensemble des chroniques florentines, écrites en latin et en langue vulgaire, depuis la « Légende des Origines » et les « Ge...

Abstract

This book proposes a series of studies devoted to one of the most important areas of political and institutional history, that of the relations between the political dimension and the exercise of justice. Centred on the experience of Florence, but open to comparison with that of other parts of Italy, the investigation brings to light how, in the transformation of the political framework of the age of the Comune to that of the territorial State between the thirteenth and the fifteenth centuries, in the relations between the powers active in the territory the sphere of justice offered scope for debate and political competition as well as leverage for legitimisation. One of the intentions of the book is, in fact, to contribute to revising the concept of justice, going beyond the traditional vision of public function and an aspect of the progressive affirmation of the State.

Abstract

This book recounts the phases in the set-up of the new Library of Social Sciences of the University of Florence. The move provided the opportunity for bringing together the collections that were scattered over seven service points and in about a dozen other sites closed to the public. At the same time, it provided the opportunity for reconsidering the services on offer, reorganising them on the basis of the characteristics of the new site. The first section tells how the library was conceived and planned, with the librarians' working groups preparing the move and projecting the changes to be made in the new site. The second part tackles the problems of organisation and management of the services in the new library.

Abstract

The subject of economic valorisation has become a current topic and the idea that culture can be considered a factor of economic production, able to generate wealth, appears to have been generally accepted. The book consists of a series of essays about the economic valorisation of the cultural, artistic and environmental heritage of the art city of Florence using a business economics approach and will appeal to scholars and researchers focusing on the cultural economics and managerial economics of art and to practitioners in the cultural sector and policy makers.

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.
