Venedig und Padua sind Nachbarstädte

Venice and Padua are neighboring cities with a topographical and geopolitical distinction. Venice is a port city in the Venetian Lagoon, which opened up towards Byzantium and the East. Padua on the mainland was founded in Roman times and is a university city, a place of Humanism and antiquarianism. The contributions analyze works of art as aesthetic formulations of their places of origin, which however also have an effect on and expand their surroundings. International experts investigate how these two different concepts stimulated each other, and how the exchange worked.

  • Works of art as an expression element of their places of origin
  • Files of the Padua and Venice sections on the occasion of the congress of the interdisciplinary Renaissance Society of America
  • With contributions from international experts such as Sarah Blake McHam, Beverly Louise Brown, Debra Pincus and Giovanni F. Villa
