- About this book
Salt has always played an important role in economic and social life of communities and the manufacture of salt itself becomes part of the history, tradition and economy of the area around Volterra. This volume documents the acquisition of the surrounding territory, the technical and fiscal evolution connected to the commerce of salt providing a preliminary to the appraisal of subsequent work by the Lorena family.
