Ravenna's Monumental Heritage and the Italian Renaissance

Focused on Ravenna's impressive mausoleum of Theodoric (493-526), the talk recovers the reception of this building in painted and graphic works of the Renaissance. Simultaneously it reflects on the mausoleum's textual descriptions in the history of early modern art.

Giancarla Periti is Assistant Professor of Italian Renaissance Art at the Department of Art, University of Toronto.  She has published widely on Correggio's art, female monasticism, and the art collecting phenomenon in early modern Italy.

This event is free and open to the public.  For further information, please contact the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies at (416) 585-4484.
