'The strengths of this ambitious monograph lie in the breadth and depth of its research, in the concise but always appropriate attention to fine detail, and in the importance of the questions it raises.' Urban History 'The translation of Donatella Calabi's Il mercato e la citta: Piazze, strade, architetture d'Europa in eta moderna (Venice, 1993) makes available to English-speaking scholars one of the few comparative histories of late medieval and early modern European cities... Calabi's work is based on an enormous body of sources, largely secondary, and she is to be commended for such thorough research and mastery of a wide body of English and foreign-language material.' Journal of Modern History
The early modern period is often characterised as a time that witnessed the rise of a new and powerful merchant class across Europe. From Italy and Spain in the south, to the Low Countries and England in the north, men of business and trade came to play an increasingly pivotal role in the culture, politics and economies of western Europe. This book takes a comparative approach to the effect such merchants and traders had on the urban history of market places - streets, squares and specific buildings - in some of the great commercial European cities between the 15th and 17th centuries. It looks at how this in period, the transformations of designated commercial areas were important enough to modify relationships throughout the entire urban context. Market places tend to be very ancient, continuing to function for centuries on the same location; but between the middle of the 14th and the first decades of the 17th, their structures began to change as new regulations and patterns of manufacture, distribution and consumption began to install a new uniformity and geometry on the market place.During the period covered by this study, most major European cities undertook the rebuilding of entire zones, constructing new buildings, demolishing existing structures and embellishing others. This book analyses the intentions of innovation, in parallel with the sanitary and hygienic reasons, the juridical regulations of the architecture of certain building types and the urban strategies as efficient tools to better control the economic activities within the city.
