International Symposium: Vitruvius in the Nordic Countries: Classical Studies, Archaeology, Art, and Architecture
24 NOVEMBRE 2023
Centro Studi Vitruviani in Fano
Via Arco D’Augusto, 81
61032 Fano PU
Vitruvius studies experience a new vitality in the Nordic countries, also linked to the recently published translations of his ‘De Architectura libri decem’ in Finnish and Norwegian, which follow the Swedish and Danish editions.
The authority of Vitruvius and the legacy of his treatise inspired classical studies and the artistic and architectural culture in most varied forms for generations. The resonances of it are evident in the education of archeologists, artists and architects as well as in the modern image of the Nordic capital cities from 19th century.
The Centro Studi Vitruviani in Fano calls for new studies on the topic in a wide range of disciplines, from classical studies to literature, from archaeology to art and architecture.
The international symposium in November 2023 will launch a call for papers to select new studies by young scholars to be presented in a seminar in March 2024. The results will be published in a special issue of the CSV new scientific journal ‘Vitruvius’.
