Un Medioevo «globale»? A proposito della Storia mondiale dell’Italia


Medieval studies often deal with transnational history, although this trend is not recognized by the scholars who defined the features of the “World history”, being this usually related with “modernity”. Middle Ages are the times of widespread phenomena like the making of the Western Christendom, the circulation of noble and merchant elites, the building of supranational monarchies. The essays that deal with medieval subjects included in the volume Storia mondiale dell’Italia partially reflect these leanings, showing the issues of the historical question of an Italian unitary identity.
