Simona Cerutti’s research focuses on petitions during the early modern period. Instead of interpreting them as pressures on governers from below, Cerutti will consider them as expressions of a political pact, and will try to understand their grammar and contents. Cerutti’s work combines iconography and political and legal theory with social analysis.
