The proceedings of the international conference dedicated to the monetary circulation between the Swiss and Italian regions in the high Middle Ages have just been printed and are available for distribution. The proceedings have been dedicated in memoriam of Michael Matzke, the renowned Medieval numismatic scholar who was a speaker at the Conference and has prematurely died in 2020.

The conference was organized in September 2018 by Circolo Numismatico Ticinese (CNT) and saw the participation of several leading scholars such as Simon Coupland, Arent Pol, Guillaume Sarah, Michael Matzke, Ermanno Arslan etc. The topics touched contributed to shed new light for the high Middle Age period bringing new evidence or revisiting and expanding known sources and hoards analysis.

The conference was the recipient of a grant by the International Numismatic Council.
