The representation of the urban environment in "Welscher Gast" by Tommasino de Cerclaria (beginning of the 13th Century) is permeated by the diffidence towards social, economic and cultural transformations that coincided with the loss of importance of the feudal system. City life is here connoted as subject to instability and irreligiousness, which is in turn related to the diffusion of heresy. The rich iconographic apparatus of the work emphasises these aspects, referring back to the traditional depiction of the civitas dei as anti-model against the corruption that pervades the community of men.
