    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.

    "Aiutando l’arte". Inscriptions in Tridentine decors in Italy

    La dépréciation du recours aux inscriptions par la théorie artistique du Cinquecento se voit tempérée lors du Concile de Trente par la volonté ecclésiastique d'un encadrement des pratiques de l'image. Pour comprendre les enjeux et explorer les modalités de cette revalorisation momentanée du rôle didactique de l'écrit au sein de l'image, cette journée d'étude sera consacrée à l’importance, à la place, aux types, aux formes et enfin aux fonctions des inscriptions et écritures qui font retour en nombre dans les décors religieux monumentaux d’Italie pendant la seconde moitié du XVIe siècle et au début du XVIIe siècle.
