The Neo-Platonic tradition of love treatises still awaits to be studied as a complex and coherent philosophical and literary genre that exerted a great influence on European, not just Italian, sixteenth-century culture. The number of books written on this subject are still an uncharted ocean. By the term 'love philosophy' sixteenth-century culture included poetic texts, philosophical tracts, prose narratives, moral and religious treatises. This session welcomes contributions on less known texts, as well as new approaches to classics such as Leone Ebreo's Dialoghi d'amore or Ficino's Sopra lo amore.
