Colloque : « Arte e vita religiosa al tempo di Cosimo I. Continuità e cambiamento », Florence, Kunsthistorisches Institut, 14-15 novembre 2019

Organizzato dall’Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore e dal Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz in occasione del V centenario della nascita di Cosimo I dei Medici (1519–1574). All’epoca di Cosimo I de’ Medici l’arte era lo strumento comunicativo più diffuso, sia per la Chiesa che per lo Stato. Il Concilio di Trento ha poi invitato le istituzioni committenti a ripensare i temi tradizionali, e all’interno di questa dinamica avevano particolare importanza sia l’evidente continuità dottrinale con...

Exposition : « Heavenly Earth : Images of Saint Francis at La Verna », Washington – The National Gallery of Art, du 25 février au 8 juillet 2018.

The Descrizione del Sacro Monte della Vernia (1612) depicts the monastery and dramatic rocky terrain of La Verna, the site where Saint Francis received the stigmata.

Drawing on the Gallery’s holdings of Franciscan imagery, spanning the 15th...

La reconquête par le livre et l’estampe Au cœur de la réforme catholique dans les Pays-Bas (XVIe-XVIIe siècles) Université de Liège Salle des Professeurs Si l’utilisation du support imprimé par les mouvements réformés protestants doit être considérée comme le premier phénomène de mass média de l’histoire et qu’elle a, à ce titre, engendré une bibliographie écrasante, force est de constater que l’exploitation du livre et de l’estampe par la réforme catholique n’a pas bénéficié de...

Séminaire: « Vasari, Arezzo, and the Trecento: Art and the Medieval Tradition in Renaissance Tuscany », Research Forum Seminar Room, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, Strand, London, Wednesday 23 November 2016 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

In the 1550s and 1560s Giorgio Vasari renovated the Pieve and cathedral in his hometown of Arezzo and created several new altarpieces for the Pieve, where he established his family funerary chapel. These projects traditionally, and understandably, have been closely associated with Counter-Reformation tenets and treatises. The art and architectural history of both sites, however, suggests that Vasari was as much, if not more, invested in stressing continuity and cohesion of ritual and iconographic tradition, especially that...
