Abstract

Until the end of the 13th century the works dedicated to the history of Milan have always dealt extensively with the war fought between the towns of Lombardy and the Emperor Frederick I. In particular, the story of the surrender and the subsequent destruction of Milan in the spring of 1162 has been extensively told. The comparison between the various reconstructions examined (from Bonvesin da la Riva in the 13th century to that of Pietro Verri in the late 18th century) brings out differences due both to the sources available to each author and the different cultural and political mood in which the texts were written.
