The essay discusses the role played by commercial and financial activities in the structuring of urban economies in late medieval Italy. Adopting a perspective that takes more account of trade on a regional scale as the primum movens of the commercial revolution, the author analyzes three different economic cycles: the one linked to the great and general expansion of the XII-XIII centuries, the one that is framed under the label of the 'fourteenth crisis' and finally the new fifteenth-century expansive phase which is located in the context of the regional Renaissance states. Among the 'variables' at the centre of the discussion a central position is reserved to the subject of competition (both internal and international) and to the weight exerted by politics, with an eye for the Catalan-Aragonese expansion in the Mediterranean between the XIV and XV centuries.

Abstract

The essay discusses the role played by commercial and financial activities in the structuring of urban economies in late medieval Italy. Adopting a perspective that takes more account of trade on a regional scale as the primum movens of the commercial revolution, the author analyzes three different economic cycles: the one linked to the great and general expansion of the XII-XIII centuries, the one that is framed under the label of the 'fourteenth crisis' and finally the new fifteenth-century expansive phase which is located in the context of the regional Renaissance states. Among the 'variables' at the centre of the discussion a central position is reserved to the subject of competition (both internal and international) and to the weight exerted by politics, with an eye for the Catalan-Aragonese expansion in the Mediterranean between the XIV and XV centuries.
