Bivio. Biblioteca Virtuale On-Line

Bivio – Biblioteca Virtuale On-Line offers digital versions of texts and images from humanism and the Renaissance. While most texts come from Italy, there are also texts from other parts of Europe.

Texts are ordered by author and title (under ‘Autori’), or by theme (under ‘Proposte di lettura’, in the section ‘Percorsi’). In addition, both basic and advanced search in the entire collection are possible. Texts are shown in modern edition. Under ‘Immagini’, in the section ‘Percorsi’, a collection of images that illustrate the various themes from the texts are shown. They can be downloaded in PDF format.

The project is the result of a collaboration between the Istituto di Studi sul Rinascimento and Signum – Centro di ricerche informatiche per le discipline umanistiche of the Scuola Normale di Pisa. It is supported by the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività culturali and the Fondazione del Monte dei Paschi di Siena, in collaboration with the history department of Harvard University.
