The hypothesis of the conference is the assumption that the mendicants played a significant role in the formation of an iconography of the civitas. On the one hand, the participation of the mendicant orders in humanist discourses in the context of the valori civici will be highlighted. We thus ask how they communicated and passed on ideas, and in this way shaped—directly or indirectly—the materially conceived and built body of the city. On the other hand, the focus will be on the appropriation of an ‘aesthetics of civitas’ on the part of the orders. How did the use of certain materials, iconographic features, the conscious reception of antiquity versus local tradition, and even the construction and design of space relate to humanist discourses?
