    The recurrence of cinquecentocinquantenario (1445 - 1995) of the Hospital Foundation of the Innocents on the Square of the Servants of Mary in Florence, has provided to defendants specialists from Italian and foreign universities, an opportunity to define together the framework of the studies in the field of history hospital and, thanks to their contributions, the last lines of research in this area. The work presented here play more application lines, which reveal specific interests, but all consider carefully and add new ideas to the knowledge of the process that, starting from the late Middle Ages, brought the hospital institution to boot without lessening the welfare tradition before embarking on their therapeutic practice and in medical practice. The role played by Innocenti in this context is to offer various search options, welding and split together between the two plans: therapeutic and health, making varied and articulated the 'reading' not only of the late medieval Florence, already known for his "admirable nursing homes", but also that of all the other cities studied in this conference.
