About this book

Italian Academies have typically been studied individually or in the context of specific cities, leaving an important lacuna in the scholarship on Italian culture and early modernity. Cutting across various disciplines, this volume traces the relationships of these Academies and explains how they prefigured networks like the République des letters.

About the authors

Simone Testa holds an MA in History from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland and a Phd in Italian Literature from Royal Holloway (University of London, England) on political discourse in sixteenth-century Italy. He has been working on the Italian Academies Database (http://www.bl.uk/catalogues/ItalianAcademies/About.aspx) for two consecutive phases, while teaching at various institutions in Britain. He has been Visiting Research Fellow at the John Rylands Research Institute at the University of Manchester, UK; the Newberry Library in Chicago, USA; and the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, USA. This is his second book.

Reviews

“The book is interesting, has a good deal of information, and makes its case. The author provides the original for translated passages and full bibliographical citations including pagination for articles in collective volumes. … it is a useful book with much information about Italian academies.” (Paul F. Grendler, Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 70 (1), 2017)
