Biblioteca della Società Napoletana di Storia Patria, Via Vittorio Emanuele III, Napoli, NA, Italia
From 15/11/2018 to 17/11/2018, Napoli
The initiative is part of the renewed interest in this topic by European historical writing, which tends to favour the knowledge of strategies and political practices in the Mediterranean and the Iberian peninsula by dynasties related both through family and behavioural choices under a political, economic, social and religious profile.
