This presentation is a preview of the Mapping Chivalry website, which will be open access from January 2024. This three-year project, financed by the Italian Ministry of Research, developed under the coordination of Anna Bognolo of the University of Verona, with the participation of a group of Italian universities and Hispanists divided into four research units. The Trento unit, coordinated by Prof. Demattè, prepared a database dedicated to the chivalric motifs present in Spanish chivalry books of the sixteenth century; the Verona unit worked on sixteenth-century Italian continuations of Spanish chivalric romances; the Salerno unit prepared a database dedicated to the Spanish chivalric theater of the seventeenth century; the Rome La Sapienza unit prepared a database of twentieth-century and contemporary rewritings of the chivalric novel and of Don Quixote.
