Abstract

In a densely populated region like Tuscany, at least up to the first decades of the 14th century, the control and the organization of a stable and coherent road network was one of the main stakes in the development process of a first state structure. The hamlets and the big centers of the Tuscany countrysides where thus integrated into a communication system that had to be funcional to the cities in the strictes sense of the word (civitates) from a political, economic and demographic point of view. The originated a policy of road management that, first of all, led the subject communities to the maintenance, the supervision and the stabilization of a stable road network, whic was defined by the juridical and political legitimateness of the leading communal villas; it emphasized even more, on the one hand, the asymmetry of the connection between the cities and the hinterland and, on the other hand, the reactions of the communities of tuscans "minor centers".
