Special Series


HEB is pleased to be making the Villa I Tatti series available in collaboration with Harvard University Press and The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies. The Villa I Tatti program is dedicated to advanced research in all aspects of the Italian Renaissance. Since its inception in 1961, I Tatti has welcomed over 1000 Fellows working in the fields of Italian Renaissance art, history, literature and music. The resulting work encompasses some of the most significant scholarship on the Italian Renaissance published over the last decades; below is a list of these works currently featured as part of HEB's online collection.
