Submitted by Fran├žois Gravel (Canada), Jan 2, 2018 at 12:46

Those who romanticize the Italian Renaissance, do they really wish they had been born in 15th century Venice rather than, say, in 20th century Boston? Do tell us. But not before having read "The Culture of Violence in Renaissance Italy: Proceedings of the International Conference (Georgetown University at Villa Le Balze, 3-4 May 2010)", ed. by Samuel Kline Cohn Jr. and Fabrizio Ricciardelli (Florence: Le Lettere, 2012).
