    The dissemination of opera between Rome and Venice (17th c.) and the Chigi Collection

    Ce séminaire a pour objectif d’étudier un ensemble de partitions d’opéra collectionnées entre les années 1660 et 1670, qui semblent fournir une bonne représentation des goûts et des intérêts musicaux d’un groupe restreint de nobles passionnés par l’opéra. Dans ce cercle nous retrouvons Lorenzo Onofrio Colonna, sa femme Maria Mancini, des membres de la famille Chigi, ainsi que de nombreux artistes liés à ces mécènes.

    Conference, symposium - History

    The Vico Road

    Giovanni Battista Vico (1668–1744) spent most of his professional life as Professor of Rhetoric at the University of Naples. He was trained in jurisprudence, but read widely in Classics, philology, and philosophy, all of which informed his highly original views on history, historiography, and culture. His thought is most fully expressed in his mature work, the Scienza Nuova or The New Science. In his own time, Vico was relatively not so known, but from the nineteenth century onwards his views found a wider audience and today his influence is widespread in the humanities and social sciences. While borrowing our title “The Vico Road” to James Joyce, the conference at the Paris Institute of Advanced Study will examine the current state of the study of the works of Giambattista Vico. We will try to encourage discussion of ideas that can be considered Vichian in nature and that have some affinity with modern and contemporary thought.

    Acadamies and universities in France and Italy (1500-1800)

    Co-presence, competition and/or complementarity?

    Les échanges constants entre universités et académies ont structuré pendant toute l’époque moderne tant l’organisation des espaces de savoir que les carrières des érudits et lettrés, jouant un rôle important non seulement dans le développement des institutions savantes, mais encore dans celui des disciplines qui ont pris corps en leur sein. Ces journées explorent les effets de cette coprésence à travers une investigation comparée des configurations françaises et italiennes, en accordant une attention particulière aux rapports de ces institutions aux pouvoirs, tant politiques que religieux, dans les configurations locales et nationales qui furent les leurs.
