Lucca 1430–1494: The Reconstruction of an Italian City-Republic

M. E. Bratchel


This book provides a scholarly history of Lucca in the 15th century, from the overthrow of the Guinigi despotism to the beginning of the French invasion of Italy. Thoroughly grounded in the archives, the study covers a wide range of important themes and topics in Lucchese history. The book explores both the politics and the economy of the city, examining city governance and relations with its subject communities. It sets Lucca in its regional context as an important city-republic and as a neighbour of the large and powerful city of Florence.

Keywords: Lucca, 15th century, Italy, Italian history, Guinigi, French invasion, city governance, city-republic, Florence
