Join an online overview in Italian at the end of November of the Neoclassical period in Lombardy.
If you’re not familiar with this pivotal period in Lombardy, then it’ll be great for general information, but it’ll also be a useful background for our Spring 2021 visit of the exhibit, “Passionate Lives. Books and Intrigue in the Napoleonic Period” (Vite appassionate. Libri ed intrighi in età napoleonica) in the splendid Maria Theresa room of the Brera Library, so mark that on your calendars, too.
The exhibit offers the opportunity to relive some of the exciting moments of the history of taste when the classical was used as an antidote to Rococo flourishes, and when the taste for rational and ethical rigor gave to the arts a solemn civic importance. Highlights of the visit: paintings by Appiani and Bossi, as well as elegant books printed by Bodoni and illustrated with refined engravings.
The videoconference (in Italian) will take place on the platform Google Meet.
The office can effect platform connection trials sufficiently prior to the date of the videoconference.
