    Caging the sky: art, history and anthropology of aviaries

    Deeply rooted in the long history of technology, architectural construction, and the domestication and acclimatisation of animal species by humans, aviaries are an interdisciplinary research subject offering multiple approaches for studying both past and present bonds, connecting societies to their environment, to explore the place of birds in the collective imaginary, but also to appreciate the originality of works or constructions that were conceived in order to  represent, signify or house animal life. They make a spectacle of the flight of birds for the external observer and tend to celebrate the captivity of animals as a state of “semi-freedom”.

    Leonardo and Antiquity

    Conference at Hadrian's Villa

    To mark the five hundredth anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, the “Istituto Autonomo Villa Adriana e Villa d’Este - Villae” (Tivoli, Rome) is organizing a conference with the theme of: “Leonardo and Antiquity”, at Hadrian’s Villa. At the dawn of the 16th century, Leonardo da Vinci visited Villa Adriana, then known as “old Tivoli”. The conference in preparation intends to explore ways in which this journey influenced Leonardo's genius, also in the context of the time period and work of Leonardo's contemporaries and/or disciples. In the company of internationally recognized keynote speakers, the conference welcomes the participation of both Italian and foreign researchers and scholars who answer this call for papers, as a major focus of the conference will be to place Leonardo's trip to Tivoli within a broader cultural context. The deadline for the paper proposals is fixed at January 25th, 2019.

    Memories of the Ventennio. Representations in and memorial issues of the Fascist regime from 1945 to the present day

    Cinema, theatre and the visual arts

    À soixante-dix ans de la fin du second conflit mondial, nous pouvons toujours apprécier en Italie l’abondance d’une production artistique multiforme qui ne cesse d’évoquer, d’explorer et de réélaborer le souvenir de la dictature italienne. Cette multiplicité des expressions mémorielles se situe non seulement dans la pluralité de leurs supports visuels mais aussi dans la source même de ces souvenirs. c’est à la lumière de cette évolution historique, historiographique et générationnelle que nous souhaitons interroger le réservoir d’images, de paroles et de gestes mobilisé par les artistes depuis 1945. Comment ces mémoires, directes ou indirectes, se déclinent-elles au cinéma, dans les arts plastiques, au théâtre ? Quels usages et quels objectifs mémoriels visent-elles ?

    Milano allo specchio: da Costantino al Barbarossa l’autopercezione di una capitale

    L’intention de ce colloque est de regarder Milan à travers ce prisme autoréférentiel. Le but est de repérer les points cruciaux de ce processus historique en se servant d’approches transdisciplinaires qui permettent de fournir une vision à 360 degrés. Les contributions d’historiens, d’historiens de l’art, d’archéologues, d’historiens de la langue et de philologues consentiront donc de dessiner une image novatrice de la ville. Les axes porteurs de telle réflexion s’articuleront autour de trois thématiques : Milan capitale, la figure d’Ambroise et les emblèmes royaux lombards. Il s’agit de concepts qui reviennent régulièrement au fil des siècles afin de justifier les ambitions politiques, territoriales, ecclésiastiques, ainsi que culturelles de la ville. Pendant nos journées d’étude, on essaiera de comprendre par quels instruments – en prenant en considération tous les médias artistiques et les différentes sources – la continuité de la ville se construit. Il s’agira également de décrire les mécanismes qui font de la tradition un agrégateur identitaire fondamental.

    Heritage and digital humanities

    This interdisciplinary and international conference aims at gathering and confronting two notions that are currently quite fashionable: heritage and digital humanities. Heritage, to be understood as goods shared by a community and founding its cultural identity, is to be taken in its widest meaning. Digital humanities offer methods, practices and numerical tools serving traditional research objects, but also new ones and leading to new theoretical and analytical approaches.We shall question the specific contribution of digital humanities to the development and dissemination of a given heritage. What can be the advantage of digital technologies with regards to more traditional approaches, whether it is museographical, ethnologic, literary, linguistic, etc.?
