An active publication program serves as a bridge between I Tatti and the international scholarly community. The Harvard Center has an obligation to make available the important research that originates here, from studies by individual Fellows and group research projects to the conferences, seminars, and lectures held here each year. I Tatti also publishes research conducted outside the center that adds significantly to our understanding of the Italian Renaissance. The publications program consists principally of our journal, I Tatti Studies in the Italian Renaissance, and four book series: the Bernard Berenson Lectures, the I Tatti Renaissance Library, the I Tatti Studies in Italian Renaissance History, and the Villa I Tatti series. In addition, seven works about the Berensons or I Tatti were produced by or in collaboration with the Harvard Center. 

I Tatti’s publications program is supported by the Lila Wallace – Reader’s Digest Endowment Fund, the Scholarly Programs and Publications Funds in the names of Malcolm Hewitt Wiener, Craig and Barbara Smyth, Jean-François Malle, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Robert Lehman Foundation, and the Myron and Sheila Gilmore Publication Fund.
