Partager cette page :

Intervenante : Francesca Trivellato (Université de Yale)

Was Renaissance Florence the cradle of Western capitalism and individualism ? The presentation takes up this old and important question on the basis of work in progress on roughly 5,000 business contracts registered in Florence between 1445 and 1808, arguably the longest and most homogeneous archival series of business contracts from pre-industrial Europe. It illustrates the theoretical and historical issues behind this study and discusses its contribution in relation to past and ongoing projects concerning the application of computer analysis to Renaissance Florence.
