Abstract

This paper aims to reconstruct the context in which the first chair of Modern Languages was established in the United States. The chair, which was created at the College of William and Mary in 1779 and entrusted to Charles Bellini, who had arrived in the New World with Philip Mazzei, is the result of various factors: on the one hand the Revolution, on the other the higher education system reform and Thomas Jefferson’s personal interests.
