In most divisions of the Carolingian realm, the imperial dignity remained attached to Italy. In contrast, some North Alpine commentators saw the Italian kingdom as a mere appendix to the Frankish empire. The Carolingian rulers in Italy did not inspire histories or texts that depicted them in a very favourable light. Carolingian rule introduced some momentous texts and practices in Italy – capitularies, the Carolingian minuscule, counts, placita to name just a few of the innovations. Nevertheless, in many respects, we may wonder how deep their impact in Italy really was.

This international workshop brings together specialists on ninth-century Italy in a discussion-oriented event. It addresses the question how Carolingian “Carolingian Italy” was in the end, and how the Carolingian rulers in the century after Charlemagne (814-924) governed.
