Merchant writers : Florentine memoirs from the Middle Ages and Renaissance by Vittore Branca( )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The birthplace of Boccaccio, Machiavelli, and the powerful Medici family, Florence was also the first great banking and commercial centre of continental Europe. The city's middle-class merchants, though lacking the literary virtuosity of its most famous sons, were no less prolific as writers of account books, memoirs, and diaries. Written by ordinary men, these first-hand accounts of commercial life recorded the everyday realities of their businesses, families, and personal lives alongside the high drama of shipwrecks, plagues, and political conspiracies. Published in Italian in 1986, Vittore Branca's collection of these accounts established the importance of the genre to the study of Italian society and culture. This new English translation of Merchant Writers includes all the texts from the original Italian edition in their entirety. Moreover, it offers a gripping personal introduction to the mercantile world of medieval and Renaissance Florence."--
Boccaccio medievale by Vittore Branca( Book )

58 editions published between 1956 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con questo saggio, pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1956, Branca proponeva un approccio nuovo al Decameron e al suo autore. La personalità del Boccaccio, fra innovazione e tradizione, diventa emblematica della stagione definita l'"autunno del Medioevo". Una personalità e una stagione che si incarnano in quella grandiosa trasposizione narrativa dell'architettura gotica che è la celebre raccolta di novelle; del Decameron viene riconosciuta la molteplice natura: affresco della civiltà comunale, epopea della società mercantile, rappresentazione della "commedia umana", repertorio del reale e al contempo paradigma cristiano

Amorosa visione by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )

16 editions published between 1943 and 1986 in 3 languages and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amorosa visione (1342, revised about 1365) is a narrative poem by Boccaccio, full of echoes of the Divine Comedy and consisting of 50 canti in terza rima. It tells of a dream in which the poet sees, in sequence, the triumphs of Wisdom, Earthly Glory, Wealth, Love, all-destroying Fortune (and her servant Death), and thereby becomes worthy of the now heavenly love of Fiammetta. The triumphs include mythological, classical and contemporary medieval figures. Their moral, cultural and historical architecture was without precedent, and led Petrarch to create his own Trionfi on the same model. Among contemporaries Giotto and Dante stand out, the latter being celebrated above any other artist, ancient or modern." --
