The Monastic Network in the Urban Neapolitan Fabric (12th–16th centuries)

Antonio Bertini, Gemma Teresa Colesanti, Maria Soler Sala

Abstract


This paper explores the urban and spatial changes that occurred in the city of Naples between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries, which were mainly due to religious institutions.   
The study of edited sources and the innovative georeferencing of each monastery reveals the image of a city where the living space within the walls was very limited in contrast to the absolute preponderance of religious orders.
