Italica Press has been publishing editons and studies of the work of Francesco Petrarch (1304-1374) since its first title in 1986. Since then we have gradually added works by and about this foundational humanist. These now come together to provide a valuable series of titles for the classroom, the nonspecialist and the general reader.

We welcome further proposals for editions, translations and studies.
