Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the Lodovico Pontano family in Florence. After a successful exam the young Pontano offered brilliant career opportunities. The target of the Pontano brothers was nearby Florence. Here Francesco had influential humanist friends who could help the refugees to take in the city on foot. The chapter presents an overview of the career planning of Lodovico Pontano in Florence, Siena and Padua. Pontano undertook the teaching in Florence for the upcoming academic year 1428/29. But then a surprising turn. Suddenly a few days before the beginning of classes the neighboring town of Siena showed burning interest for the young jurists. Pontano decided within a few days to stay in Florence and to ignore his just-concluded contract with Siena. Not only Siena was interested in Pontanos services. For some time Padua staying under Venetian rule opened a contract with Pontanos. The original text of the chapter is in German.
