Collection directed by Rosa Tamborrino
The Collection Storia Urbana/Urban History aims to be a voice for new reflections and
investigations that cut across those disciplines historically focused on urban settlements. It seeks to
present significant findings from research into the 'history of the city', case studies related to
problems concerning individual or collective memory, investigations developing proactive
approaches regarding the tools, sources, methods used and the theories that inspired them.
It has been conceived to host in-depth contributions - preferably monographic, and even collectively produced, but always built around a clearly-defined overall project -, the fruit of innovative research focused on original aspects or questions. It is aimed at an international audience and is intended to have a reach such that it can, over time, become a methodological and academic benchmark for scholars on the strength of a wide-ranging cultural vision.
All papers to be published will undergo Double Peer Review.
“Multiethnic Cities In The Mediterranean World. History, Culture, Heritage”
|“Multiethnic Cities In The Mediterranean World. History, Culture, Heritage”|
|This volume addresses the question of multiethnicity in the Mediterranean world as a category of interpretation spanning time and space, while at the same time circumscribing one aspect which becomes dominant. The approach proposed intends to explore the historical and cultural dimension, in order to gauge levels of awareness of an inheritance to be shared. In delineating such a field of work, it has been essential to be able to draw on the broad and articulated support of a collective endeavour, with contributions which look, in particular, to those cultures and spaces which find in the city their basic focus. The results thereof are highlighted pluralities and relations which offer us the possibility to reflect on elements to be compared and contrasted, to find links. Mature and specific research efforts are accompanied by samplings and stimuli; collectively, the essays collected herein contribute to the creation of paths of reading, along the route of a research project which remains open.|
