Abstract

Gay studies are a young research field in international historiography. Over the past few years, after a period of relative silence, historical studies on homosexuality have begun to develop also in Italy. The aim of this article is to review recent research in Italian early modern homosexuality, comparing contexts and considering methodological issues. The paper highlights the lack of gender-oriented works in a historiography which has mostly been dominated by sexual crimes analysis. In addition, it discusses some of the potential ways in which the cultural history approach might be applied in LGBT research.
