The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy (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 notably Kenneth Clark.

- Part Two: The Development of the Individual
- Part Three: The Revival of Antiquity
