Italian Academies have typically been studied individually or in the context of specific cities, leaving an important lacuna in the scholarship on Italian culture and early modernity. Cutting across various disciplines, this volume traces the relationships of these Academies and explains how they prefigured networks like the Republique des letters.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The work is easy to navigate, thanks to the useful index of all academies discussed. ... Testa's book, itself the product of a collaborative network of scholars, offers a wealth of information on early modern intellectual networks in Italy. Together with the Italian Academies Database, it will be a valuable tool for any scholar interested in this phenomenon, as it makes visible the complex academic network across the Italian peninsula, connecting books, people, and cities." (Anna-Luise Wagner, Modern Language Review, Vol. 113, April, 2018)

"The book itself aims to explore, in greater depth, particular individuals and their networks in the circulation of knowledge. ... This book contains much useful information. Anyone studying one or more Italian academies will want to look at it and certainly will want to use the database on which it is based." (Pamela O. Long, ISIS, Vol. 108 (4), 2017)

"The book is interesting, has a good deal of information, and makes its case. The author provides the original for translated passages and full bibliographical citations including pagination for articles in collective volumes. ... it is a useful book with much information about Italian academies." (Paul F. Grendler, Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 70 (1), 2017)
