Presentazione dei libri “Companion to the Early Modern Cardinal” (2020) e “Portrait Cultures of the Early Modern Cardinal” (2021)
Rome is home to almost one hundred museums and countless collections from the four corners of the worlds. How did these collections of ethnographical, natural and archaeological objects come about and what do they reveal about Rome’s and Italy’s engagement with the expanding world, its colonies in Africa, and the ‘New’ World after 1492?
This event highlights ongoing research into the town of Rome a thousand years ago, in the middle of the Middle Ages.

L’Italia brandisce la spada dell’Antica Roma. Classical Archaeology, Ancient History, and Modern Myths in Early 20th Century Italy
Social responsibility as the moral obligation individuals or organizations have towards the wellbeing of society, is a key topic in 21st century public debate. The conference centers on the question how this topic was dealt with in Early Modern Christianity (ca.1400-ca.1700) as a period that brought about fundamental and long-lasting changes and brought forth inspiring individuals with innovative ideas. The conference seeks to shed historic light on the relevant issue of social responsibility in the expectation that academic research comes up with inspirational results. The conference is interdisciplinary and comparative regarding various geographical and confessional positions.
