- The second meeting, on 30 September, focuses on Gli affreschi nelle ville venete. L’Ottocento, edited by Sergio Marinelli and Vincenzo Mancini and published by Marsilio. e result of long-standing collaboration between the Istituto Regionale Ville Venete and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini Institute of Art History, this volume deals with 19th-century fresco decorations in villas in northeast Italy; it will be presented by Fernando Mazzocca and Paola Marini.
- The last date, 7 October, will be devoted to four new volumes in the series entitled “The National Edition of the Works of Andrea Gabrieli”, produced by the Fondazione Giorgio Cini Institute of Music in collaboration with the publishers Casa Ricordi. These anthological collections of four, ve and six-part madrigals, were composed over a period of almost a quarter of a century (1566-1589). Seen together, they chart the deep changes in Gabrieli’s personal literary and musical canon: from his youthful predilection for Petrarch’s lyrics (especially in the “First Book for Five Voices”), to the irresistible attraction exercised by the modern epigrammatic madrigal (found in the later works of the “ ird Book for Five Voices”).
The series will be presented by Alessandro Borin and Cristiano Ostinelli.
