A Companhia Neroni-Salviati de Pisa e as relações comerciais com a Península Ibérica (1454-70)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The Neroni-Salviati’s company based in Pisa, belonging to one of the most important Florentine families, was the protagonist of an intense commercial and financial activity from the mid-15th century with the main European cities. Since this company specializes in relations with Barcelona, Valencia, Cadiz, Lisbon, and Oporto, this Ph.D. project will focus on trade relations with the Iberian Peninsula, and not just with Portugal. The primary source for the research of the activity of this company is their books of accounts, from 1454 until 1470, deposited in the Archivio Salviati at Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa. The work will be divided into four parts connected with the main goals of the project. The first part will be dedicated to an archival and source's typology analysis since its unprecedented technical peculiarity to the Iberian reality for this period. The second part will focus on a study of the protagonists, in order to understand how the integration of the Neroni company in the Salviati's group took place, determine its position in this commercial group, as well as in the panorama of the other Florentine merchant companies. The third and fourth parts are divided according to the type of economic activity: commercial or financial. The methodology applied to both will have as purpose to trace the profile of the company's business through a cross-sectional study to geographical space covered in this project. One of the goals is to identify the business actors and agents set the existing connection levels. That allows us to reconstruct the company's social network of interests, beyond the economic sphere and will allow us to understand any political and social interests.
