This volume gathers the proceedings of the conference organized to commemorate the meeting that took place in the same town in 1260, after the battle of Montaperti where the Ghibellines of Florence triumphed over their Guelfo rivals. According to Dante and the tradition, in that occasion Farinata degli Uberti opposed the proposal to destroy Florence that had been advanced by the ghibelline leaders, and conquered in doing so a right to immortality.
