Call For Papers

In 1991, the conference La penisola italiana e il mare. Costruzioni navali, trasporti e commerci tra XV e XX secolo (Viareggio, 29 aprile – 1 maggio 1991) took place in Viareggio to discuss various aspects linked to the history of the Mediterranean, the tradings, and the maritime activity which was conducted in this area during the Middle Ages and in Modern Times. Thirty years on, the Accademia “Maria Luisa di Borbone”, together with other prestigious academic institutions, has organized an international two-day conference, focused on the relations between the Italian Peninsula and the Mediterranean sea, a topic which will be examined through many different points of view. The inititave is meant to remember Tommaso Fanfani (1943-2011), professor of Economic History at the University of Pisa, and aims to create a scientific debate on a series of issues linked to Mare Nostrum from the Middle Ages up to current times.
The international conference will last two days (Friday 18th and Saturday 19th September 2020) and will take place in Viareggio, a harbour in the Mediterranean sea and adopted town of Tommaso Fanfani.
