5 Comments to “2012 Conference Programme and Podcast”

  1. The Venetians had already stood up to Rome politically, employing Paolo Sarpi as their official jurist and theologian. A legal genius, he brilliantly defeated Rome’s infringements of Venetian sovereignty. But Allacci’s glorification of Roman culture and the pope himself must have played a part in the formation of the Accademia degli Incogniti in 1630, and later in the Academy’s response to the Apes Urbanae with its own Le Glorie degli Incogniti, sub-titled ‘on illustrious men’, which saw the light in 1647, just after Urban’s demise and disgrace. Listed, also in alphabetical order, were Venetians of cultural, artistic and political distinction – poets, novelists, satirists, historians, playwrights, librettists — and many non-Venetians as well, with a portrait and biography for each member, and a summary of published and unpublished writings. Allacci had composed in Latin; the Glorie were all in Italian. The Incogniti’s works, furthermore, were aimed at a wide literate public, not a restricted latinate elite. These two books, while undoubtedly tools of cultural propaganda setting forth each centre’s assertion of cultural hegemony, portray the Incogniti as the harbingers of a modern literature in the vernacular laying to rest a clerically dominated one.

    • Thank you for your post. What you are writing was the central point of one of the presentations at the Conference.

  2. UMBERTO PESCHI, accademico dei Catenati, fu protagonista delle iniziative artistiche promosse dall’Accademia negli anni ’60 e ’70. Un ricordo particolare merita la “Mostra degli Artisti Catenati” svoltasi a Palazzo Buonaccorsi dal 30 ottobre al 6 novembre 1969 nella quale, oltre a Peschi, esposero loro opere Ivo Pannaggi, Sante Monachesi, Carlo Cantalamessa, Virgì Bonifazi, Sesto Americo Luchetti, Giuseppe Mainini, Eraldo Tomassetti, Wladimiro Tulli, Nino Ricci, Lamberto Massetani, Paolo Magri Tilli, Agostino Bonci.

Altri importanti membri di questa accademia furono Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz , Alessandro Volta , Charles Babbage , Max Planck , Otto Hahn , Albert Einstein e Rita Levi-Montalcini .
