    The monastery of the Santissima Trinità in Monte Oliveto in Verona was founded at the beginning of the 12th century by the Vallombrosan monks, who arrived in the city from Central Italy during the Church Reform thanks to the fundamental contribution of Matilde di Canossa and the Major Abbots of the Order, Bernardo degli Uberti and Atto da Pistoia. From a Reformist perspective, the institution became a strategic outpost of Roman obedience in an episcopal see traditionally pro-imperial and hostile to the Papacy. This volume, thanks to the contribution of researchers from different disciplinary fields and considering the most up-to-date research perspectives, provides a new critical interpretation of the history, archeology, architecture, art and restoration of the monument from its foundation to beginning of the Modern Age.
