Tuscany, an Early Modern Meeting Place brings together information regarding merchants from Spain and Portugal who were based in Tuscany in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.  Their activities allow us to consider patterns of consumption in Tuscany and in the Italian and Iberian Peninsulas, as well as to study them and their roles as intermediaries who made of Tuscany a true place of encounter between Europe, the New World and Asia.
