    Levantine Sociabilities in Europe in Giacomo Casanova’s time

    Spies, Impostors, Courtesans and Men of Culture

    In the eighteenth century, intrigue, libertinage and criminality changed the social norms of politeness and education thereby creating nonconformist social behaviours. An explicit, but certainly not unique, manifestation of these new trends is represented by the city of Venice and its adventurer par excellence, Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798). Ecclesiastic, writer, soldier, spy, alchemist, gambler and diplomat, he was engaged in a network of social relationships which are documented in his Histoire de ma vie (History of my Life), one of the most authentic sources of the customs and norms of European social life during the eighteenth century. Like London, Paris and Vienna, Venice became a centre of social mobility, geographically located as the threshold of the Levant.

    Female crimes between history and literature from the Middle Ages to the modern age (France-Italy)

    Les études sur la présence des femmes dans le droit pénal relèvent souvent un paradoxe : les femmes ont beau ne représenter qu’une infime partie des statistiques criminelles, leurs crimes pâtissent d’une forte charge symbolique qui mène à la constitution d’archétypes-repoussoirs – de l’empoisonneuse à l’infanticide en passant par la maquerelle, la sorcière ou la femme adultère. Dans ce contexte, la foule des femmes criminelles que l’on retrouve dans la littérature – des fabliaux médiévaux aux nouvelles et pièces théâtrales de l’époque moderne – apparaît autant comme la traduction sur le papier de phénomènes sociaux diffus que comme une étape de l’élaboration des archétypes, influençant à son tour l’écriture de la loi et la pratique quotidienne de la justice.
