CENOBIUM – A Project for the Multimedia Representation of Romanesque Cloister Capitals in the Mediterranean Region
The aim of the CENOBIUM project is to facilitate, by means of high-resolution digital photography, video, 3D scanning and an interactive web interface, the analysis of the complex dynamics of artistic exchange in the 12th and 13th century.
Ecology and Aesthetics. Environmental Approaches in Art History (e/ae)
Ecological and aesthetic theories are intertwined in multiple ways. The project opens a dialogue with archeology, anthropology and history of science concerned with the "anthropocene", rethinking the nature/culture divide in a transcultural perspective, including notions of heritage and sustainability, creation and consumption.
The Ligurian Complex. Case Studies in Ecology and Aesthetics
The project examines the complex overlaying and interpenetration of horizontal, vertical, or entangled spaces in Liguria, which are a challenge for an art historical investigation of both the production of landscape, terraforming, the interaction of human and non-human factors, and their aesthetics.
The Space of Childhood: The Adler Collection between Architecture, Art, History, Pedagogy and Creativity
This project studies a recent donation to the Biblioteca Nazionale Braidense in Milan: the unpublished correspondence of the architects Hedwig Feldmann and Hans Edward Adler, dating back to their stay in the USSR from 1930 to 1933, as well as their collection of 257 Soviet children’s books, most of which were published between the 1920s and 1933.
