Alberto Luongo’s research focuses mainly on the political-institutional and socio-economic history of the communes (city-states) of central and northern Italy between the 12th and 14th century. This paper will present the outcomes of a forthcoming book, co-edited by him and Antonio Montefusco: this collection of essays, based on an interdisciplinary conference held in 2019, revisits the story of the so-called “wolf of Gubbio” through a new philological approach and a strong connection with the local history between 13th and 14th century. Specific attention will also be paid to its comparison with other hagiographical legends of saints and wolves and to the depiction of this story in paintings from the 14th century.
