RiMe 13/I n.s. (December 2023)

RiMe 13/I n.s. is a Miscellaneous Issue including five scientific articles, a "Research Instruments" text and a Book Review.

The first article develops a comparison between the Obra Pía de los Santos Lugares of Jerusalem – the economic and financial framework founded by the Catholic Monarchy- that was capable of financing the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land - and the proposal of public treasury to heal the finances of the Crown between the 16th and 17th centuries.

The  second article demonstrates how foreign merchants negotiated with the authorities in Venice, in particular the magistracy dedicated to mercantile affairs – the Cinque Savi alla Mercanzia. The  text reveals that instead of being transformed by Venetian legal systems, the immigrant merchants themselves succeeded in influencing judicial administration within the heart of Venice’s corporate government.

The third article focuses on transformations in the field of navigation during the 19th century, observed through the lens of a small port in Liguria, Savona. The use of a variety of primary sources (ship visits, crew rolls, travel reports) allows for the reconstruction of the gradual shift from traditional sail navigation to the new era of steam navigation.

The fourth article is focused on the cooperative relationships established between Italian fascists and Spanish Falangists during the Spanish Civil War in the city of Bahía Blanca (Buenos Aires province, Argentina). From a perspective aimed at elucidating the collaboration process among immigrant right-wing factions in Argentina, it is observed the jointly conducted activities.

The fifth article analyzes the thinking and international political action of Pasqual Maragall in the Mediterranean during his years as mayor of Barcelona (1982-1997). The text explains how his theories on the role of cities in international action were embodied in Mediterranean action of the Municipality of Barcelona and how his idea of Europe was also built from the Mediterranean.

The “Focus” Section of the Issue hosts a text dedicated to the website, that is a study proposal, a working hypothesis, a guide to consult and understand the pre-unification Italian consular archives (1815-1860) through the publication of inventories. The brief methodological notes aim to illustrate the criteria and intents of the research.

The Issue ends with the Book Review of Manuel Alejandro Castellano García (2022). Gran Bretaña y la paz española de Utrecht. Valencia: Albatros Ediciones.
