Per un'analisi del costo della vita nella Verona del Settecento
[For an analysis of the living cost in Verona during the XVIII century]


  • Ferlito, Carmelo


Focusing on the urban context of Verona (a major city in the Venice Republic) during the XVIII century, the paper aim to clarify if, and in which measure, the cost of living of the employed population changed along the century. Instead of simply analyzing salaries and prices, the Author built a data analysis able to clarify if those salaries and prices allowed workers to survive and how the purchasing power modified from the beginning to the end of the XVIII century.
