This book traces the activities of the Study Centre on Late Mediaeval Civilisation, founded with premises in San Miniato in 2008, illustrating in detail the programmes of the initiatives carried out. The introductory essays by the chairman of the Scientific Committee, the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the two most recent Directors delineate the aims and objectives of the institution. Attention is focused in particular on the form of its links with the Italian and international late mediaeval and modern historiography of the last twenty-five years, underscoring its active and valid contribution to the development of such research. Finally, a packed schedule of conventions, seminars, conferences, training courses and other cultural initiatives complete the picture of one of the most renowned and prestigious entities in the sphere of studies on the Middle Ages and the early Modern Age.
