The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy
- Di: Jacob Burckhardt
- Letto da: Geoffrey Howard
- Durata: 14 ore e 9 min
- Versione integrale
In this landmark study of Italy from the 14th through the early 16th centuries, Swiss historian Jacob Burckhardt chronicles the rise of Florence and Venice as powerful city-states, the breakup of the medieval worldview that came with the rediscovery of Greek and Roman culture, and the new emphasis on the role of the individual. All these, Burckhardt explains, went hand in hand with the explorations of science and the more naturalistic depiction of the world in art and literature.
