The Culture of Violence in Late Medieval and Early Modern Italy

Georgetown University at Villa Le Balze
In collaboration with:

Via Vecchia Fiesolana, 26 - Fiesole

For years the Renaissance in Italy has been perceived through the eyes of
the Swiss historian Jacob Burckhardt, largely due to his famous section
of The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy (1860) entitled The state
as a work of art. He described Italian city-states as creators of genius
and talent forged in their enlightened political forms of government.
Even if many of the central conclusions of Burckhardts essay have long
been contested, Burckhardt's masterpiece has shaped the sense of our own
past and how our culture has developed from its Roman past to the
present. Research in the twentieth century has shown the reality of
Italian Renaissance to have been different. Italian sources suggest a
violent society through the thirteenth to the sixteenth century, a
society fostered by communal political struggle, revolts, and
conspiracies. This International Congress has the aim to investigate the
real identity of Italian society between 1200s and 1500s, were cruelty and
violence were coherent procedures for altering and settling differences in
social relationships and in power struggles.
