Silvia Diacciati, L’immagine di Dante nel Palazzo del Bargello

In 1840 a portrait of Dante Alighieri was found in the Bargello Palace. The poet’s presence among the Elect in Heaven, painted on the altar wall of the Magdalen Chapel, has generally been accepted by Dante scholarship until the Seventies of the last century. Since then, however, this has been far from a straightforward issue, and thus deserves reconsideration. This article examines the extent to which the claim of that presence may find confirmation through a purely historical analysis of the Florentine context.

 

Francesco Borghero, Il capitolo della cattedrale di Firenze prima della Peste Nera (dalle imbreviature di ser Bonaccorso di Gerino del Cacciato, 1340-1346)

The present paper conducts a study on a notarial protocol conserved in the Florence State Archive which contains about five hundred acts drawn up by the Florentine notary ser Bonaccorso di Gerino del Cacciato for the Florence cathedral chapter between 1340 and 1346. The objective is the reconstruction of the aforesaid notary professional profile and the description of the institutional structure, the administrative activities and the complex of the land and estate properties of the Florentine cathedral chapter in the years preceding the Black Death.

 

Barbara Gelli, ‹‹Non bastando la morte dei morti, volsero vedere che i vivi vivessero morendo››. La congiura senese del 1456 tra immaginario politico e consenso popolare

This work analyses the political communication campaign that developed following the Sienese conspiracy of 1456. The aim is to show how the political factions in power in Siena during the Renaissance continued to use the political culture of the Buon Governo [Good Governance] to legitimise their authority and gain broad popular consensus. In this case, the new government even succeeded in legitimising the closure of the political situation and establishing a temporary oligarchic season with the use of political communication based entirely on the civic symbols and languages of the bonum commune [common good].

Roberto Pertici, Nazione e Stato nazionale nel pensiero di Rosario Romeo

The issue of the nation and the national State runs through all the historiographical activity of Romeo, from its beginning and, in particular, in the years between 1976 and 1979. In that period, with a rather homogeneous series of interventions, Romeo tries to carry out a historiographical revision and a conceptual clarification, placing himself immediately in a critical attitude towards the prevailing orientations in Italian historiography on these issues. At the same time, Romeo reflects upon the history of the post-war Western Europe, in which the crisis of the sense of national belonging has caused important changes both in public ethics and collective behavior.

 

Documenti

 

Matteo Al Kalak, Generazioni riformatrici. Considerazioni a margine di un carteggio di L.A. Muratori

The article focuses on the correspondence between Lodovico Antonio Muratori (1672-1750) and the chancellor Beltrame Cristiani (1702-1758). Through their correspondence, it shows how a generation of politicians and intellectuals, engaged in political reform, took Muratori as a point of reference, recalling in particular his jurisdictional battles against the undue claims of the Roman Curia and his proposals for religious reform.

Remo L. Guidi, Gomes Eanes ovvero un fiorentino del Portogallo

This book is a collection of letters addressed to Gomes Eanes, the abbot of the Badia Fiorentina between 1419 and 1439, but curiously what is absent in it is precisely the protagonist himself. However, we come to know a world filled with Portuguese clients who resort to him for a wide variety of motives. Also present are monks with their own stories of financial debts, their need to assist old and sick relatives, problems of the most serious sort touching on the reform of the order, the perils they have undergone in their travels, their concerns about going on trips on horseback, and other such problems that one would have trouble finding in official documents.
