The volume, which collects the proceedings of the international conference held in Florence in the spring of 2005, takes up the theme of the urban and rural revolts of the fourteenth century, which has known a certain oblivion in recent times compared to the extraordinary fortune it enjoyed above all in the 60s and 70s of the last century, driven by the troubled events of those decades. The sixteen essays that compose it, the work of specialists from five different European countries, develop three different forms of analysis within a chronological frame that refers to a wider fourteenth century, ranging from the last decades of the thirteenth century to the early fifteenth century , according to a consolidated and shared chronology.
