The volume offers a reflection on the relationship between Russian and western culture, represented by Florence as the ‘cradle of Renaissance’. The authors, Italian and Russian, consider under different perspectives the meaning of this confrontation, accentuated between XIX and XX century. The term ‘Anti-Renaissance’ indicates here the coexistence of a sort of ‘demonizing’ interpretation of the Renaissance centrality of mankind for a Russian alternative, and an admired devotion for it.
