Based on the Dei delitti e delle pene by Cesare Beccaria, published in 1764 and immediately translated into several languages (German, French, English), the Digital Humanities project focuses on the concepts produced by legal and philosophical thought and their translation into Europe around 1800, thus contributing to the development of a metalexicographical information system that will capture the spatial and temporal evolution of European legal languages.
