The foreigner as an object of thought; as a host welcomed or repressed; or as an actor living a social, legal and political experience – these are the three points that this project proposes to clarify.
This project will examine their movements and their institutional and diplomatic dealings, placing Italy within its European context, in particular connected to France and the Hispanic and Germanic worlds.
The project looks at overseas establishments between the 14th century and the middle of the 19th century, by looking at religious, political, economic or learned institutions, from a local, national and transnational perspective as well as from the perspective of people on the move, studied as individuals, organized groups or imagined communities.
The three main research directions:
- Standards, discourses and representations of hospitality
- Reception practices: to help, control, reject
- Groups and individuals on the move: mobility experiences
