- About this book
A new, original study on the role Florentines played in French public finances in the mid 16th century. In 1555 the difficulties encountered by the royal treasury forced Henry II to a transaction that lead to the consolidation of a debt of more than 5 million Torinese lire. Through an accurate reconstruction of amortization mechanisms and institutional policies, emerge both the cultural modernity and contrasting attitudes of Florentine merchant-bankers.
