A Chronology of
Events in Italy

60,000 BC - 1300 AD

1300 AD - 1998 AD

     This anthology is centered around a compilation of term papers written by students attending  Italian Life and Culture; 1000 BC -1500 AD (Ital333) and Italian Life and Culture 1400 AD - Present (Ital334) at the University of Maryland University College (European Division). Although not professional researchers/writers, my classmates and I have an interest in sharing our research  with future students of the course (or similar courses elsewhere) and with the internet community as a whole.

Additionally, the timelines presented give a chronological overview that will be useful to the student of Italian History.
