All Roads Led to Rome

Italy as the Center of the Medieval World
What we are experiencing today as globalization existed in a more limited form back in the Middle Ages. Travel routes were shortened and new ones were established, and people and merchandise from faraway places reached Europe. One major intersection of this development was in Italy. Sea republics such as Amalfi, Genoa and Venice mastered the seas all the way to trading centers even in the Crimea on the Black Sea, and explorers like Marco Polo traveled overland to distant lands all the way to China. The papacy spread a wide net of administrative structures and agents throughout Europe and at the same time attracted secular powers. Italian families settled in various places in Europe, while people from all corners of the continent visited Italy as pilgrims or tradesmen, some of whom remained there.

Based on his extensive knowledge, Thomas Ertl outlines the processes, structures and consequences of this early globalization in a clear way.
The foundations of modern Europe
History as a model for today’s upheavals
Clear depictions of interconnections and background information
The history of globalization and trade is currently a topic of enormous interest
