Cronica Universale - Written By Giovanni Villani, Matteo Villani, Filippo Villani


Giovanni Villani & Cronica Universale:
  • Giovanni Villani (1275-1348) begins the Cronica Universale.
  • It was written in Italian rather than Latin.
  • The Cronica Universale started from Biblical times.
  • Very quickly afterwards Giovanni began to write carefully about the events that occurred during his own time.
  • The statistical data he documented, and the detached approach, was unparalleled for the times.
  • His clear business-like mind, with his keen observations on people, was very useful for this task.
  • The historical events are reported just as he heard them, with little personal interpretation.
  • Giovanni Villani was clearly a chronicler & not a historian.
  • Giovanni's death by bubonic plague (Black Death) in 1348 stopped the writing of the Cronica Universale.
Matteo Villani & Cronica Universale:
Filippo Villani & Cronica Universale:
  • Filippo was the son of Matteo Villani.
  • Filippo continued the writing of the Cronica Universale, after his father's death, until 1410.
