The heraldic heritage of the Italian cities is still a monument to the ubiquity of heraldry in the Middle Ages. However, research into the heraldry of the Italian cities in particular, and in fact heraldry in the city in general, has remained relatively scarce. The conference ‘Heraldry in the Medieval City: The Case of Italy in the European Context’, which will take place 5-7 May 2015 in Rome, sets out to change this by bringing together heraldists, historians, art historians, historians of visual culture and urban history to propose new pespectives on heraldic signs in the city and open up new tracks for future research. (See the full call for papers for more information.)
