For the past three years The Courtauld Institute of Art and the Università degli Studi ‘Federico II’, Naples, have held an annual ‘roving seminar’, exploring Naples in a series of visits led by Professors Francesco Caglioti, Francesco Aceto, Tomaso Montanari, Rosanna de Gennaro and Paola d'Alconzo and a team of postdoctoral scholars and doctoral candidates.
This year’s seminar takes place in London, where, in addition to a series of visits to London Collections, two public workshops will be held presenting work-in-progress by early-career and emerging scholars from both institutions. The two workshops will feature short papers, allowing time for discussion and dialogue in English and Italian. Although not dealing with exclusively Neapolitan material, each session will provide an opportunity to explore aspects of cultural exchange and art-historical practice between Naples and Britain, as well as to hear new research across a wide chronological and thematic span.
The organisers are most grateful to the Andrew W Mellon Foundation and The Courtauld Institute of Art’s Research Forum for their generous support.
