The Cronica written by friar Salimbene de Adam from Parma is extremely rich in references to authors and texts. This is the reason why Salimbene de Adam’s Cronica is so well-known among medievalists. Indeed, it is an extraordinary source to understand and analyze the reference models not only for the Franciscan culture, but also and above all for friar Salimbene. Like every existential itinerary, Salimbene de Adam’s path of life is an expression of personal choices. With its happenings and changings of directions, Salimbene de Adam’s existence determined the criteria to select the texts and the authors he quoted in his Cronica. In this sense, the Cronica can be considered a sort of intellectual autobiography.
