A new edition of New Voices for a new year.
The appointment showcases three young art historians before the fond public of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum. The initiative, now in its 9th edition, brings three young scholars – newly graduated from the History and Criticism of Art program at the State University of Milan and introduced by their university professors – who will speak (Iin Italian) about their research to the public over a span of Tuesdays.
Beginning this cycle of talks is Daniele Pelosi, introduced by Rosanna Sacchi (professor of the history of artistic literature at the State University of Milan), who will speak about Humanism and Patronage in the Rome of Julius II: the Case of Cardinal Marco Vigerio.
Even if already at the end of the 16th century the figure of Marco Vigerio had been set aside, recent studies based on then-contemporary documents render justice to the role of cardinal in the Rome of Julius II: brotherly aid of the pontif and eminent Franciscan theologian, Vigerio distinguished himself as an illustrious exponent of the circle of Humanists in Rome and as a patron of the arts.
The series New Voices was once again made possible by the dedication of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum in the area of research and highlighting culture, reinforced by the institutional ties between the museum and the university. It is a witness to the investment in excellent talented young scholars to whom is offered the opportunity to share the fruit of their studies with a public outside the university sphere.
