« Loggia, loggiato, portico. Cibo, architettura e ritualità dal Medioevo al Rinascimento tra effimero e quotidiano »
3-5 septembre 2015
Session at the 7th conference of Associazione italiana di storia urbana
“Food and the City” – Spaces and Processes of Food
Session Chairs: Francesca Mattei (Politecnico di Milano – polo territoriale di Mantova), Francesca Salatin (Università IUAV di Venezia)
The panel focuses on the use and the form of spaces dedicated to banquets and ceremonies from Medieval Era to Renaissance: the case-studies are the loggia, the loggiati and the portici built in Italy and abroad. Papers should consider the form of loggia, loggiati and portici in a different type of buildings – palaces, urban and country houses, castles – and should analyse the variation connected to geographical sites and location.
Possible discussion includes the analyses of artistic (graffiti, pictorial or sculptural) decoration, literary remains, antiquarian influence. To discuss this topic is also to consider the politic, social, anthropological and ritual value of logge, loggiati and portici and the variety of the functional interpretation, as ephemeral or as routine spaces.
The panel is intended – but not be limited – for architecture and art historians as well as representatives of neighbouring disciplines. All perspectives and methodologies are welcome.
Papers should not exceed 20 minutes.
Please send your proposal (max 200 words) in italian or english and a short cv to:
