About this product
- DescriptionCathedrals and civic palaces stand to this day as symbols of the dynamism and creativity of the city-states that flourished in Italy during the Middle Ages. Markets and Marketplaces in Medieval Italy argues that the bustling yet impermanent sites of markets played an equally significant role, t only in the ecomic life of the Italian communes, but in their political, social, and cultural life as well. Drawing on a range of evidence from cities and towns across rthern and central Italy, Dennis Roma explores the significance of the marketplace as the symbolic embodiment of the common good; its regulation and organization; the ethics of ecomic exchange; and how governments and guilds sought to promote market values. With a special focus on the spatial, architectural, and artistic elements of the marketplace, Roma adds new dimensions to our understanding of the evolution of the market ecomy and the origins of commercial capitalism and Renaissance individualism.
