Abstract

In the first half of the 14th century Venice fought ‘Terraferma’ wars, against Ferrara, an ally of Pope Clement V, in 1309 and against Alberto and Mastino della Scala, lords of Verona, between 1336 and 1339. The one last, ended with the victory of Venice, contributed to its rule on the ‘Terraferma’. Some epic poems celebrated these wars, following the consolidated tradition of writing contemporary military deeds in hexameters. The poem De victoria Ferarensium contra Venetos is about the conflict with Ferrara; another one attributed to Giacomo di Piacenza and the Liber Marchiane ruine relate the war with Verona. This paper examines these poems, their manuscript tradition and sources of in spiration, placing them in the cultural context of northern Italy in the early 14th century.
