Chapter Summary

The history of the relations among Cyprus, Genoa and Venice as well as that of Italian commercial activity on the island has drawn the attention of scholars for many years now. Their study is possible due to the great number of published documents from the archives of Genoa and Venice. This Italian archival material provides valuable information on the multifarious interests of the Italians on Cyprus, economic, political, and diplomatic. Nevertheless, the collection Diversorum Communis Janue, which is preserved in the Archivio di Stato of Genoa (ASG) and which contains numerous documents on the history of Cyprus, has not been studied systematically as yet. This chapter attempts a brief presentation of these documents, which the author published in 2005. The documents in this collection are contained in different filze, which were assembled using the method of the medieval loose-leaf binder.
