The Course has international characteristics both for teaching and for the students. It endorses the aims and continues the Séminaire de droit comparé et européen of the Center for European Legal Studies, founded in 1959 by Germain Bruillard and Enrico Paleari and uninterruptedly operating at the Faculty (now Department) of Law of the University under the Convention of March 4, 1966, approved by the University Board of Directors (Consiglio di Amministrazione) with deliberations on January 27th, 1966 and April 22th, 1966.

In order to do so, topics will be covered, such as: geography and the periodization of the Renaissance - policies and institutions - art - philanthropy and patronage - humanism and political thought - literature and vernacular poetry - historiography.
