The first complete critical edition of a decisive text expressed in the political thought of Humanism at the beginning of the 15th century. The text of the letters exchanged between Poggio Bracciolini and Guarino Veronese on the topic of superiority between Scipione and Cesare is preceded by an introduction that highlights the cultural density of the controversy (ancient sources, medieval or pre humanistic life-styles) and analyses the influence this had on subsequent political thought.
