  • Title: Donne e scrittura a Venezia nel tardo trecento [Remarkably few personal documents from Venice survive from before the 16th century nor was the Venetian vernacular a developed literary tongue; consequently we have very little material written by Venetian women; Cataruza da Pesaro, however, has left us letters to her brother-in-law; other signs of literacy include legacies of books and a handful of autograph wills].
