In this important book Elena Fasano gathered the results of researches pursued with rigour and civic passion over a period of twenty years and offers a coherent and organic vision of the language of Florentine republicanism and its adaptations to the profound political and cultural transformations which followed the transition of Tuscany from a republican to princely rule. On the basis of a very intelligent analysis of the writings of major and minor authors, set on the background of the political and institutional changes under way, she illustrates the evolution of political and historiographic language, highlighting its continuities and discontinuities, its contradictions, ambiguities and uncertainties.
