Dino Compagni's Chronicle of Florence
University of Pennsylvania Press, 1986 - 110
Dino Campagni's chronicle gives a detailed account of a crucial period in the history of Florence, from ca.1280 and ending in the first decade of the fourteenth century, a period of political turmoil and factional strife. The escalation of violence, as insult and reprisal led to arson and murder, provides the bitter content of Compagni's story. Dino Compagni was a successful merchant, a prominent member of the silk guild, an active member of the government. Like Dante he sided with the Whites and, after their defeat in 1301, was barred from public office. He lived the rest of his life as an exile in his own city.
