Maize to the people! : cultivation, consumption and trade in the north-eastern Mediterranean (sixteenth-nineteenth century)
2020, scientific monograph

Abstract: This volume is a first attempt at examining one of the most important and yet little-studied aspects of the Colombian exchange: the introduction and diffusion of maize in some countries of Southern Europe. While the potato and its impact on European history have been examined in quite some detail, thanks to a large number of articles and monographs, the same cannot be said for maize - despite the incontrovertible importance this crop has achieved as a foodstuff in many rural areas of the Mediterranean region, as is probably most true of Italy. But even in the case of Italy, after the seminal work of Messedaglia (1927), we can mostly find only short contributions or a few insightful syntheses. However, much the same may be said with regard to other Mediterranean regions and countries since the historiographical 'state of the art' regarding maize is quite similar if not even more scarce. Apart from the generally unsatisfying number of specific regional studies on maize in the earlier stages of its diffusion, one thing is certainly even more true: we lack a comprehensive vision and a comparative perspective on this process that would embrace the whole of Southern Europe.

Complex Gateways : labour and urban history of maritime port cities
2022, scientific monograph

Abstract: In this book, we try to find out our own way to deal with the complexity of the social, technical, economic, and institutional entanglement defining the history of any seaport. The common implicit research question was: can we use our thinking about the historical identity of the city-port nexus to find new insights about the possibility of overcoming the specialized approaches, and have an evolutionary representation of the symbiotic/syncretic arrangement of the city-port systems, inside the peculiar North Adriatic environment? We have adopted a transdisciplinary approach, encompassing economics, sociology, anthropology, and politics, with the common aim of crossing disciplinary boundaries and studying the city-port nexus as an integrated entity. Over a long-run perspective, the definition of a seaport identity has resulted from the stratification of many waves of intervention, from the first institutional definitions of its roles, privileges, and operational areas to the subsequent slow definition of its economic, social, and even cultural and symbolic values.
