Abstract

The essay aims to investigate an economic activity not much known or emphasized by the scholars of Medicean Florence and Tuscany: the leather industry and its trade in the second half of the XVI century. The research, thanks to the first hand documentation based on account books, let the historians penetrate the very core of a big firm related to the Capponi, a family that counted among its members several merchants engaged in the international money market and senatori of the State. Thanks to this documentation it is possible to reconstruct, in detail and for a period of ten years, the complete business of a big tannery. Moreover, the documentation highlights some unexplored aspects of civil justice with its rich evidence of fees for legal actions against unfulfilling suppliers and insolvent purchasers.
