The Italian Renaissance (Italian: Rinascimento [rinaʃʃiˈmento]) was a period in the Italian history that covered the 15th (Quattrocento) and 16th (Cinquecento) centuries, spreading across Europe and marking the transition from the Middle Ages to ents of a "long Renaissance" argue that it began in the 14th century and lasted until the 17th century ().Date: 14th century – 17th century.

The Renaissance focus on learning and the invention of printing in Europe fed each other. The search for more accessible, cheaper books led to the invention and proliferation of the printing press, which, in turn, led to the wide institutionalization of literature as an essential aspect of Renaissance life.

The history of Italy is characterized by two periods of unity—the Roman Empire (27 BCE– CE) and the modern democratic republic formed after the end of World War II. Between those two periods may have been a millennium and a half of division and disruption, but that disruption saw one of the world's great flowering of art, the Renaissance (circa – CE).
