Abstract

This essay aims to enlighten the main juridical problems raised by the regulation of the tailoring profession in the Italian cities, between the late Middle Ages and the early Modern Times. After describing the different phases of sartorial work, as well as the accessory services that tailors were allowed to practice in exclusivity, special attention will be given to the issues connected to the work calendar defined by statutes, as well as to the pronounced seasonality of this job. After further remarks on the placement of the tailors’ workshops in the urban space, the central importance of the tailoring profession in the clothing sector will be demonstrated making reference to the frequent targeting of tailors in late medieval and early modern sumptuary legislation.
