Celebrating Venice: Renaissance Festivals

Kick off the start of December by learning more about the fascinating history of Venice! On Thursday, December 1st, join fellow Italian enthusiasts in another event recognizing Venice’s cultural history.

As a part of the Celebrating Venice lecture series, this presentation will outline and visualize Venice’s rich history of festivals during the Renaissance period. Francesca Bortoletti, Research Associate for the University of Minnesota, follows this history by examining the amazingly detailed diaries of Italian erudite Marin Sarudo. His scrupulous records serve as an interesting focal point for studying the Venetian festival as a multimedia cultural tradition.

This fascinating lecture will be held in James Ford Bell Library (on the 4th floor of Wilson Library) on December 1st from 7:00-9:00pm, and it is free to the public! To register for the event and view additional details, access the event page here.
