24 November 2016, 9.40 - 17.30 Villa Salviati, Historical Archives of the European Union, Sala De Gasperi 25 November 2016, 9.40 - 17.30 Villa Salviati, Sala degli Anelli 26 November 2016, 9.40 - 12.30 Badia Fiesolana, Sala del Capitolo ABSTRACT The objective of this conference will be to think afresh the sources on the European and Mediterranean economy of the 14th-16th centuries and to propose a plural approach which will address actors and their practices, material and immaterial flows, forms of organization and the markets. This conference, where the results of the collective investigation ANR ENPrESa on the Salviati archives (preserved in the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa) will be presented, intends to widen the lens to other archival collections, in order to grapple with the common problems and issues arising from the exploitation of business documentation. From this perspective, the sources of business companies will be considered from two major points of view: the variety of models and practices of management and organization, and how to assess clues indicating the global evolution of economies. Presentations will be held in French, Italian or English. They will be accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation in another language. In the framework of the conference, an exhibition of reproductions of documents from the Salviati Archives will be hosted in the courtyard of the main building of Villa Salviati.
