"Dare et habere"

Il mondo di un mercante milanese del Quattrocento
  • Marina Gazzini,

The Italian cities of the last centuries of the Middle Ages still saw, alongside a progressive stiffening of social hierarchies, the economic and social rise of individuals belonging to the 'middle class’: ‘homines novi’ that, without resorting to family ties and often refusing the association model of corporations, managed to build fortune and dignity thanks to trade, entrepreneurship, land exploitation, neighbourhood and parish solidarity and to the management of assistance. Emblematic of these paths of succeeding is the figure of an economic operator native of the countryside, Donato Ferrario da Pantigliate, founder in 1429 in Milan of a devotional and welfare institution, the School of the Divinity. He is a character whose social, economic and spiritual behaviours are reconstructed here against the Milanese urban context of the first half of the fifteenth century.
