Tra politica, clientele e senso dello stato: Bartolomeo Scala
in "Annali del Dipartimento di Filosofia" (Nuova Serie), XV (2009), pp. 109-130

Bartolomeo Scala’s life and writings are a definite portrait of florentine politics and culture in the second half of XV century. Public official, Medici family’s confidant and friend of Marsilio Ficino among many others intellectuals, Scala is author of a lot of literary and philosophical texts, orations and letters, historical and controversial works in defense of florentine independence. As Florence’s Prime Chancellor (1465-1497), Scala was the privileged witness of the transition of the city from medieval to modern political structure through the savonarolan revolution.
