Mercanti e allevamento a Roma fra tardomedioevo e prima età moderna
N. 1, GENNAIO-MARZO
Merchants and farming in Rome between the Late Middle Ages and
the Early Modern era
In the fifteenth century, in the task of revitalising the urban economy, farming in Rome was one of the most important investment sectors for the merchant elite. In this regard, reflections on this aspect aim to underline the role that this sector’s products (meat, cheese, wool) played in projecting trade into the interregional distribution chain. In particular, some previously unpublished documents allow us to piece together the different ways of attending fairs in the Neapolitan Regnum, and the Kingdom’s contribution to the drainage works in the Pontine area.
