Exposition : « Vittore Carpaccio. Dipinti e disegni », Venise, Palazzo Ducale, du 10 octobre 2020 au 24 janvier 2021

Celebre soprattutto per i suoi cicli di dipinti narrativi e religiosi, Vittore Carpaccio (1460/66 – 1525/26) rappresenta la grandezza e lo splendore di Venezia trasportando le storie sacre nella vita quotidiana, in scenari ricchi di dettagli, unendo l’osservazione della scena urbana al poetico e al fantastico. Oggetto di un rinato interesse della storiografia, anche grazie a recenti scoperte, attribuzioni e restauri, Carpaccio non è più stato oggetto di un’esposizione monografica dal 1963, dalla storica mostra...

Parution : Paula Hohti Erichsen, Artisans, Objects and Everyday Life in Renaissance Italy, Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

Did ordinary Italians have a ‘Renaissance’? This book presents the first in-depth exploration of how artisans and small local traders experienced the material and cultural Renaissance. Drawing on a rich blend of sixteenth century visual and archival evidence, it examines how individuals and families at artisanal levels (such as shoemakers, barbers, bakers and innkeepers) lived and worked, managed their household economies and consumption, socialised in their homes, and engaged with the arts and the markets...

Parution : Valentina Hristova, « Le Sacrifice du Christ Peinture, société et politique en Italie centrale, entre Renaissance et Réforme », Milan, Officina Libraria, 2020

Tra la fine del XV secolo e la metà del XVI secolo Firenze e Roma vedono fiorire una moltitudine di pitture sul tema del Cristo morto. Da Botticelli a Vasari, passando per i capolavori di Raffaello e Pontormo, queste magnifiche scene di compianto rimangono incomprese. Dove erano state viste? Chi erano stati i promotori? Più in generale, in che modo la rinascita di questi temi nell’Italia centrale può rivelarsi utile per chiarire un momento importante...

Parution : Sara Ritchey et Sharon Strocchia (dir.), Gender, Health, and Healing, 1250-1550, Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

This path-breaking collection offers an integrative model for understanding health and healing in Europe and the Mediterranean from 1250-1550. By foregrounding gender as an organizing principle of healthcare, the contributors challenge traditional binaries that ahistorically separate care from cure, medicine from religion, and domestic healing from fee-for-service medical exchanges. The essays collected here illuminate previously hidden and undervalued forms of healthcare and varieties of body knowledge produced and transmitted outside the traditional settings of university,...
