By Niccolò Machiavelli

L'epistolario del Machiavelli rappresenta una delle più ricche e corpose raccolte della tradizione letteraria italiana, e comprende una settantina di lettere. Si tratta di epistole “familiari”, scritte non con l'intento di pubblicarle, bensì con un'immediatezza che esula dal rigore della composizione letteraria e che ci permette di cogliere il punto di vista dell'autore sulla politica e sulle problematiche del suo pace, oltre che l. a. sua personalità. Particolarmente degne di nota le epistole destinate a Francesco Guicciardini e Francesco Vettori. Questa pubblicazione è oggi disponibile in formato book, con compendio critico integrato mediante ipertesto.
