Italian Studies Bilingual International Workshop | Pico’s Library Rebuilt – La biblioteca di Pico ricostruita

The Department of Italian Studies, the Foundation for Religious Sciences John XXIII (FSciRe) and the Pico Project at Brown University present:

“Pico’s Library Rebuilt – La biblioteca di Pico ricostruita” | Bilingual international workshop

About:

Scholars of medieval and Renaissance history, philosophy and literature as well as a less specialised public are invited to attend a bilingual international workshop aimed at discussing the most recent findings on the long-lost library of Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494). A number of highly original papers will shed new light on the life and works of this most famous humanist, whose oeuvre includes the so-called Oration on the Dignity of Man, so often dubbed as the ‘Manifesto of the Renaissance.’

The workshop will be held online over Zoom, via the FSciRe in Bologna, on November 26 2021 at 7:30pm AEDT.
Information for remote access is provided below.
