I Tatti Studies
has a long and distinguished history of publishing seminal scholarship in Italian Renaissance history, art history, literature, and music. Drawing on the traditional strengths of Villa I Tatti’s library (with holdings of nearly 175,000 volumes, over 250,000 photos, and the world’s finest collection of medieval and Renaissance music) as well as the vast international community of fellows and scholars who work in the field of early modern Italy, the journal’s contributions have addressed virtually every aspect of scholarship concerning Italy in the period from 1300-1650.

“We’re thrilled to have I Tatti Studies part of the UCP Journal program, and we feel the Press’ history of publishing the best medieval and renaissance scholarship makes us the perfect home for this distinguished publication,” says UCP Journals Director Michael Magoulias. “We are most excited to be able to offer I Tatti Studies as part of our e-Book Editions, delivering Italian Renaissance studies with 21st century technology.”
The first UCP issue will also have a new editor, Jane Tylus, Director or the Humanities Initiative at New York University, and Professor of Italian Studies and Comparative Literature. The first UCP volume will feature “state-of-the-field” essays by Diana Robin, Marzia Pieri, Edward Muir, and Michael Cole, along with guest-edited clusters on “life in the streets” in Renaissance cities and the emergence of the Italian vernacular.
Founded in 1891, the University of Chicago Press was conceived by President William Rainey Harper as an organic part of the University, extending the influence of Chicago scholars around the globe. Today, the Journals Division of the Press works with 27 society partners to distribute 58 journals and hardcover serials that present original research from international scholars in the social sciences, humanities, education, biological and medical sciences, and physical sciences.
