From September 1871 to July 1873 Alphonse Dantier (1810-1882) published, for the prestigious magazine of liberal Catholic inspiration, Le Correspondant, some contributions on the history of Florence, The Medicis and Machiavelli, collected in 1874 in the second volume of his work L’Italie: études historiques for which he was awarded the prize of the Académie Française Marcelin Guérin. Dantier, although anchored to the simplified cliché of Machiavelli “negative genius”, perceived the historiographical talent of the author of Historie fiorentine and contributed to introduce the French Catholic reader to the commitment of the Republican Machiavelli in the sixteenth-century, documenting it through diplomatic dispatches, letters to the Committee of Ten and private correspondence.
