Italian luxury in the 16th century households in Presporok
Archaeological discoveries confirmed the existence of economic and cultural contacts between Bratislava and the regions of Apennine Peninsula. Bratislava was situated at the crossroad of big international trade routes. It was an economic centre of the region; after the Battle of Mohacs the political importance of the town increased too. The findings of this paper have been considerably influenced by the state of research of historic plots, however, it is clear that the most extensive collections of imports concentrated on the plots located along major trade routes in the town (Ventúrska Street, Michalská Street, Water Tower or the castle).
