Veduta del Palazzo de' NN: H.H.: Pisani by Giovanni Francesco Costa (1750)
The Library collects materials across all subject areas in Italian, including history, linguistics, philosophy, and critical theory. It maintains a strong collection in all divisions of Italian literature, from the medieval and renaissance period to the present. We collect few introductory language textbooks, but do acquire Italian language dictionaries and other language reference material. The Italian collection is not limited to materials published in Italy.
Most Italian Studies reference materials are kept in Doe Library's North Reading Room while the major part of the collection is located in the Gardner (Main) Stacks and the Northern Regional Library Facility (NRLF) with special collections in The Bancroft Library.
