Imágenes de la conquista: el encuentro de Cajamarca en Crónica de la Conquista del Perú y en Verdadera Relación de la Conquista del Perú

Luigi Guarnieri Calò Carducci


The news about Peru that reached Europe right after the conquest has always been an object of study and reflection. The first documents that describe Peru and its treasures were soon translated into Italian, shortly after their arrival to Spain; some of them were lost in their original form and remain available in Italian only.
