Sulle “Librarie” palermitane nel Settecento: La biblioteca del principe di Torremuzza, sive lo specchio infranto


The reconstruction of eighteenth-century private libraries is a matter that raises questions about the methodological criteria to be used. In line with current historiographical methods, the essay tries to integrate correspondence and literary and archival sources to reconstruct the libraria of Gabriela Lancillotto Castelli, Prince of Torremuzza, taking care to observe the type of circulation and use of books in eighteenth- century Palermo and, more broadly, the particular effervescence of local culture following the expulsion of the Jesuits.
