Collection description

The innovative European news literature of Early Modern Period provides valuable evidence of a percep-tible change in the way catastrophes are perceived, interpreted and narrated. To the ephemeral, flying character of catastrophe news and the materials that spread it corresponds a complex and longer-lasting relationship with memory: the informative tale of the catastrophe settles and stereotypes very quickly, builds a composite shared baggageof anecdotes and protagonists shared by the various printingcenters, provides a field of political tension coveted by the various news genres of the time that highlight a com-mon desire to grab the most reliable and truthful version of the calamitous event for posterity. The survey of a sample of relazioni(reports) dedicated to catastrophes and published in the decades of maximum de-velopment of European pre-periodical genres (1600-1650), aims at observing the relationship between news and disaster memory by reconstructing the different levels of sedimentation, elaboration and memo-rialistic manipulation that emerge between the meshes of the tale
