Jacopo Sartori

PhD Candidate

Gonville and Caius College
Cambridge CB2 1TA


Born in Trento (Italy), I hold a BA (Summa cum Laude) in History from the University Cà Foscari Venice and a MPhil in Medieval History from the University of Cambridge.

Research Interests

My core area of expertise is the history of early public banking in Europe (1300-1750). My doctoral research explores public banking in Barcelona (1479-1556) and how its characters shaped an attempted yet unsuccessful "Spanish Public Banking Renaissance" in the second-half of the 16th century. My supervisor is prof David Abulafia.

I am currently completing two projects for publication: "Tracing the diffusion of early public banking in Europe, 1316–1656" and "Iniziative di banchi pubblici a Mantova, 1580-1630: dalla crisi al Banco di S. Barbara".


I offer supervisions in Part I: Paper 16 European history, 1450-1760

I also assist in the teaching of Part I Themes and Sources "Money and society from late antiquity to the financial revolution"
