The Petrarch Project

Italica Press has been publishing editons and studies of the work of Francesco Petrarch (1304-1374) since its first title in 1986. Over the years we have gradually added works by and about this foundational humanist. These now come together to provide a valuable series of titles for the classroom, the nonspecialist and the general reader. We call the series The Petrarch Project. Please follow this link to see already published titles.

Forthcoming titles include Petrarch’s Two Gardens: Landscape and the Image of Movement by William Tronzo; Petrarch: Political Writings edited and translated by Jirí Spicka; and Pseudo-Petrarch,  Lives of the Roman Popes and Emperors, translated and edited by Aldo S. Bernardo and Reta A. Bernardo, introduction and notes by Tania Zampini. 
We welcome further proposals for editions, translations and studies.
