The construction of a monarchy. About the Lombardy regional state.
Period of duration of course
The course is designed for ordinary students, but is open to anyone interested in
The focus will be on the process of the construction of a monarchy by the Visconti and how this process, at once political-institutional and cultural, was variously endorsed by court intellectuals. In particular, we will focus on Emanuele Crisolora's stay at the Visconti court, between Milan and Pavia, the rediscovery of Platonic texts, the translation of the "Republic" attributed to Uberto Decembrio and the reading of some politically significant passages.
The aims of the course are to introduce students to historiographic reflection and refine a critical approach to sources
