This essay aims to investigate the lost ‘Uomini Illustri’ cycles in Napoli, Milano and Padova, traditionally linked to Giotto, Petrarch and to the ‘Proto-Humanistic’ culture. The author offers some research ideas and hypothesis on the iconography of the lost frescoes and their cultural contexts, considering the most recent critical literature, with particular attention to Petrarchan studies, the circulation of ideas, books and images, and the surviving transformations of classical, artistic and literary models in Europe during the Middle Ages.
