Parution : William E. Wallace, Michelangelo, God’s Architect: The Story of His Final Years and Greatest Masterpiece, Princeton University Press, 2020

As he entered his seventies, the great Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo despaired that his productive years were past. Anguished by the death of friends and discouraged by the loss of commissions to younger artists, this supreme painter and sculptor began carving his own tomb. It was at this unlikely moment that fate intervened to task Michelangelo with the most ambitious and daunting project of his long creative life. Michelangelo, God’s Architect is the first book to...

Parution : Jill Pederson, « Leonardo, Bramante, and the Academia: Art and Friendship in Fifteenth-Century Milan », Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

This book is the first study to provide a comprehensive historical and theoretical account of the Academia Leonardi Vinci. Pederson brings together literary sources to offer a new interpretation of the academy not as one singular entity, but as a collection of academic modalities in Renaissance Milan. Eventually these various modalities converged around their namesake Leonardo da Vinci, as well as the architect Donato Bramante. This group drew together not only humanists, as in other...

Cycle de conférences : Sabine Frommel, « Peindre l’architecture durant la Renaissance italienne », La Chaire du Louvre, Paris, Musée du Louvre, du 28 septembre au 12 octobre 2020

Dès l’aube de la Renaissance, la mise au point de la perspective centrale et les tentatives d’appropriation de l’héritage classique ont favorisé le renouveau de la représentation fictive de l’architecture. Cette tradition léguée par l’Antiquité romaine avait connu, sous des conditions certes différentes, un premier essor en Italie à partir de la fin du 13e siècle. La fortune dont cette pratique bénéficia est surtout due à des artistes au profil polyvalent suscitant des interactions et...

Parution : Adriana De Miranda, Architettura Idraulica Medievale nel Senese, Rome, L’Erma di Bretschneider, 2020

Il governo senese dedicò, tra il XIII e il XIV secolo, un’ attenzione particolare alle fonti pubbliche e agli acquedotti, soprattutto in considerazione del fatto che la città, priva di corsi d’ acqua naturali, aveva un approvvigionamento idrico particolarmente difficoltoso. Accomunate da un accurato funzionamento idraulico, testimoniato da dettagliati studi degli artisti-ingegneri della Siena medievale, le fontane erano di diverso tipo, a seconda dell’ubicazione, scopo e committenza. Il presente studio vuole mettere in risalto l’...

Appel à communication : « Gardens and Academies in Early Modern Europe », RSA 2021, Dublin, date limite le 31 juillet 2020

Session du Congrès de la Renaissance Society of America – Dublin, 2021 The objective of this session or series of sessions is to explore the place and role of gardens in early modern academies. Although research on academies has expanded considerably in recent decades (Vagenheim et al., 2008), little has been written about the places where they met, including gardens, with the possible exception of the Bosco Parrasio in Rome (Grant, 2018). How did an academy...

Parution : Dario Donetti, « Francesco da Sangallo e l’identità dell’architettura toscana », Milan, Officina Libraria, 2020

Questa monografia presenta, per la prima volta nella sua interezza, la lunga e diversificata attività di Francesco da Sangallo (1494-1576), ultimo erede di una famiglia di artisti protagonisti del Rinascimento italiano. Lui stesso fu presenza duratura nella Firenze del Cinquecento e testimone privilegiato dell’ambiente intellettuale cittadino, coltivando frequentazioni che includevano, tra gli altri, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Benedetto Varchi, Giorgio Vasari, Vincenzio Borghini. Dalla sua poliedrica produzione – di scultore, già nota agli studi, ma anche architetto...
