Andrea Fara (Ed.): Italia ed Europa centro-orientale tra Medioevo ed Età moderna: Economia, Società, Cultura

It appears reductive to define the historical processes that characterised central and eastern Europe in medieval and modern times as a deviation or involution from the starting point of the western European model and outcomes, or as patent backwardness of the former compared to the latter. This book presents recent research, focusing on several territories and their economic, social and cultural relations with the Italian Peninsula, and offers thought-provoking new insights.
