The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy (German: Die Kultur der Renaissance in Italien) is an 1860 work on the Italian Renaissance by Swiss historian Jacob Burckhardt. Together with his History of the Renaissance in Italy (Die Geschichte der Renaissance in Italien; 1867) it is counted among the classics of Renaissance historiography.

An English translation was produced by S.G.C. Middlemore in two volumes, London 1878. Its scholarly judgements are considered to have been largely justified by subsequent research according to historians including Desmond Seward and art historians such as Kenneth Clark.[]

The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy is divided into six parts:

  1. Part One: The State as a Work of Art
  2. Part Two: The Development of the Individual
  3. Part Three: The Revival of Antiquity
  4. Part Four: The Discovery of the World and of Man
  5. Part Five: Society and Festivals
  6. Part Six: Morality and Religion
