As part of the celebratory events for the 800th anniversary of the University of Padua, the book Intellectuals and Men of the Court is presented to the public on 2 December at Palazzo Bo. Published in 2021 as Intellettuali e uomini di corte. Padova e lo spazio europeo fra Cinque e Seicento (Donzelli – Padova University Press, 2021), the book is part of the Patavina libertas A European history of the University of Padua book series, which contains works based on archival research conducted by young historians of the University of Padua. Each volume reinterprets the path the University has taken through key moments in European history by retracing all aspects of freedom and its role in the development of humanistic and scientific knowledge.

The latest volume shares the distinctiveness of the University of Padua, which has stood out for being a frontier university from the very beginning, a meeting point for students from all over Europe

Moderated by Anna Bettoni (UniPD professor and co-author of the book), the event welcomes Raffaele Ruggiero (Aix-Marseille Université), Amedeo Quondam (Sapienza Università di Roma), Warren Boutcher (Queen Mary University of London) and others.

Registration is required to participate.
