Abstract

The book presents a selection of the works presented during various encounters held in sites connected with the life of Paolo Mantegazza, aimed at retrieving and valorising his cultural legacy. An eclectic figure - scientist, novelist, anthropologist and politician - Paolo Mantegazza (1831-1910) played a leading role in Italian society and the cultural scene of the late nineteenth century. The contributions of academics from different disciplines enable us to reconstruct both the great variety of the man’s interests and curiosities, and the strict methodological rigour that guided his entire scientific production and is today the most evident sign of his contemporary relevance.

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.

Abstract

Un classico ritrovato. Si può definire così la prima pubblicazione integrale in italiano dell’opera maggiore di Gabriel Tarde, finalmente accessibile nell’edizione curata da Filippo Domenicali. Pubblicato a Parigi nel 1890, all’epoca della costituzione della sociologia come scienza, il testo affronta i nodi centrali della disciplina in un percorso che parte da una definizione dei princìpi della sociologia per spaziare in territori apparentemente eterogenei, che vanno dalla linguistica alla re...
