Very little is known about Florentine presence in Andalusia in the Late Middle Ages. From very different sources —mercantile collected letters, accounting entries, ricordanze, chronicles and nautical documentation— the present articles aims to outline the issue with more accuracy. Therefore, the study deals with information about the Florentine community in Seville and Cadiz in chronological order, to better appreciate the quantitative and qualitative differences between 14th and 15th centuries. The prosopographical method has been favoured, trying to offer the most possible complete portraits of considered individuals and societies. Last, the study deals with the presence of Florentine merchant galleys and the opening of a consulate in Cadiz.
