Scripta extravagantia. Studi in ricordo di Ferdinando Zuccotti

This volume collects the testimonies of friends and colleagues for Ferdinando Zuccotti one year after his premature death on 13 January 2023. The essays are linked to various areas of his investigations, highly original in their elaboration and conclusions, especially when aimed at the reconstruction of not secondary aspects of early Rome and of late antiquity. The collection is thus intended to be a sort of mirror reflecting what is preserved in the thought of Roman legal history today, not only of the extravagance of the themes he chose in his rigorous and uninterrupted scientific commitment, but also and above all of the eccentricity of his study angles that, even on absolutely traditional issues, characterised his peculiar way of being a Roman law scholar and scholar of legal antiquity.
