Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The paper intends to study an aspect of university policy implemented by the Dukes of Milan, the Visconti first and then the Sforza, within the boundaries of the regional state. Starting from the specific case of the citizens of the municipality of Parma who wanted to attend higher education (in particular those of law), we tried to understand on the one hand the effective effectiveness of the prohibitions imposed on all citizens of the duchy to attend other studies generals other than the one from Pavia - founded in 1361 at the explicit request of Gian Galeazzo Visconti - and on the other the advantages obtained by citizens who came from cities like Parma that were on the borders of the State and who had strongly vindicated their own political autonomy . What can be deduced from the specific case is that the university policy of the Milanese dukes if on the one hand it was an instrument of affirmation of the prerogatives of the central power, at the same time it gave the possibility to widen the horizons to many among those who came from more local situations . The 'via pavese' opened the doors of professions notable even to those who, coming from reality - like that of Parma - who had missed the opportunity for a stable development, would not have found such a wide space of social affirmation
