New Epistle Territories Between the 15th and 16th Centuries

Proceedings of the FIRB 2012 International Conference (Venice, 11-12 November 2014)

edited by

Filippo Bognini    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



This volume collects most of the contributions presented at the conference of the same name, organised as part of a broad research project on the figure of Francesco Filelfo, financed by MIUR within the framework of the Italian Fund for Basic Research (FIRB) 2012. Through the conference, the research unit present at Ca’ Foscari, directed by Filippo Bognini, aimed to provide further stimuli to the scientific debate on what the metaphor of the title evokes: i.e. the new spaces occupied, in the age of Humanism, by the fundamental genre of the epistle, not only in Filelfo (whose production in the vernacular and the intercurrent relations between epistles and Odes are investigated here), but also in other personalities who, in different contexts, made a significant contribution to the genre (from the Bolognese humanists up to Machiavelli, not excluding in-depth studies on only apparently minor figures, such as Bartolomeo Baldana or Girolamo Aliotti).
