Seeking to establish the city of Milan as a major center of Renaissance Italian humanism, this book explores the methods, concerns, and attitudes that influenced the humanist approach to the writing of history there. Ianziti focuses on the two works about Francesco Sforza written by his chancery employees, Crivelli and Simonetta, and considers the radical and innovative features of their work that evolved in response to a specific set of political circumstances. This unique focus provides not only a convincing argument for the evolution of humanist methods of historical writing in the latter half of the 15th century, but also a fresh look at the relationship between politics and culture in the Renaissance.
