Portale Vico

The “Vico Portal” is a project of the Institute for the History of Philosophy and Science in Modern Age of the Italian National Council of Research.

The Portal aims to be the broadest collection of Vichian resources and materials on the Internet. It collects all the relevant electronic publications edited by the Institute – such as Vico’s works (anastatic reproductions and critical editions), bibliographies, digital reproductions of the “Bollettino del Centro di studi vichiani” and of ancient and modern works – as well as links to other trusted open access editions, directories and resources. The “Vico Portal” is therefore, for its own nature, a work in progress, committed to continuous improvement and update.


Vico 350

2018 marks the 350th anniversary of the birth of Giambattista Vico (Naples 1668-1744), a thinker who still has something significant to say today and who can still help us to interpret the world in which we live.
On this occasion, the Institute for the History of Philosophy and Science in Modern Age of the National Research Council –  whose main mission has been to attend, since the ’70s, to the critical edition of Vico’s opera omnia – promoted a diversified scientific program.

Biblioteca Napoletana

The BINA project aims to select, index and preserve in the long term texts available in digital format on the web or elsewhere, published in Naples in the 17th-18th centuries: arguably the most lively period in the cultural life of southern Italy, as also witnessed by the growing interest shown by the international scientific community.
