Gli studia humanitatis e la resilienza: una riflessione di Marcello Adriani

Claudio Schiano


In 1497, while the Florentine Republic was struggling against many intestine and foreign enemies, Marcello di Virgilio Adriani gave a speech to the Stu­dium Florentinum and urged his young fellows to sink into the study of ancient texts and look for a way out from the evils of the city. According to him, the example of the maiores might help them to face the difficulties and adjust their behaviour to the external circumstances. This is the essence of resili­ence. The first critical edition of a relevant passage from this unedited speech is here provided.
