OVI Video Conference Seminar - Pär Larson

-

Location: Rome Global Gateway

March 7, 2018

Pär Larson: “Ancora sul Frammento piacentino: nuove letture e interpretazioni” (More on the Frammento piacentino: New Readings and Interpretations)

 

L’antico testo poetico italiano convenzionalmente noto come “Frammento piacentino”, fatto conoscere da Claudio Vela durante un memorabile seminario di studi nel 2004, non ha ricevuto le attenzioni da parte degli studiosi che ci si sarebbe potuto aspettare, trattandosi di una composizione del secolo XIII trasmessa insieme alla sua musica (cosa rara, in Italia). Si propone una nuova analisi del ms. con alcune modifiche della ‘vulgata’ e una lettura complessiva, con proposte interpretative nuove.…

Giotto’s Jubilee: Rome 1300 in Technicolor - Henrike Christiane Lange

-

Location: Rome Global Gateway

March 15, 2018

What if the lost architectural substance of medieval Rome, the city in which Giotto served as a painter to the Pope, can be partially recovered with the help of modern scientific, archaeological, and digital tools? What can we learn about the medieval forum during the First Jubilee in the year 1300, where the Papal procession featured ancient monuments in the frame of their Christian medieval context? How can archaeological findings about colours change our understanding of Giotto’s eye-deceiving murals in his most famous chapel, decorated soon after the Jubilee in the city of Padua? The lecture offers a new reading of the Arena Chapel / Scrovegni Chapel in relation to the vanished Palazzo Scrovegni and of the Roman monuments in relation to the vanished Palazzo Frangipani on the ancient-medieval, Christianized Forum Romanum. Questions of polychromy become questions of medium, iconography, iconology, critical historiography, and intellectual modernity of the chapel’s design.

OVI Video Conference Seminar - Giuseppe Marrani

-

Location: Rome Global Gateway

April 4, 2018

Giuseppe Marrani: “Oltre la parodia. Commentare i sonetti di Cecco Angiolieri” (Beyond Parody. A New Comment on Cecco Angiolieri’s Sonnets)

I sonetti ad oggi riconosciuti come angioliereschi possiedono una notevole varietà di espressione e una vivace pluralità di ispirazione finora mai messe in luce. L’originalità della poesia comica dell’Angiolieri, volentieri aperta allo scherno giullaresco e non appiattita sull’autoritratto di meschino e frustrato gaudente resta tuttora da scoprire, in particolar modo per quel che riguarda le rime d’amore, spesso lontane dall’appiattimento parodico e piuttosto animate dalla rappresentazione di una scellerata e pur fervida voluttà.…
