The Italian Cultural Institute in San Paolo is organising a series of conferences on women in Italian art. It will cover both artists like Artemisia Gentileschi, and the muses that inspired great artists like Leonardo, Raffaello, Tiziano, and Bernini.
Within a cycle of five online meetings, Luciano Migliaccio, Professor of the History of Art at the Department of the History of Architecture and Aesthetics for the FAU/USP Project, and Simone Floridia, a graduate in the History of Art from the Università Cattolica in Milan, for the History of Medieval and Modern Art, and specialising in the Historical Artistic and Architectural Heritage at Udine University, will speak on this topic. It begins with a conference on 15 September, entitled “Female images in antiquity: Leonardo’s women”. On 22 September the subject will be “Wives and Lovers: Raffaello, Tiziano, and Bernini”, on 29 it will be “Sofonisba Anguissola and other female Italian artists of the 16th Century”. On 6 October it will be the turn of “Artemisia Gentileschi and other female Italian artists of the 17th Century” and will end on 13 October with “Rosalba Carriera: the marvel of her century”. The meetings will be transmitted via the Zoom digital platform on the dates indicated, from 19:00 to 21:00.
