Journey in the Landscape of Italian Art 

Despite appearances, in art, a landscape is never just a backdrop

 

 

March 14th at 6pm

Mountains and Seas: Romantic Geography

Italian Cultural Institute

500 N Michigan Avenue, Suite 1450

 


 

The third of a series of three lectures, given by art historian Giovanni Aloi, culminating in a guided tour of the Italian works of the Art Institute of Chicago. This series of talks maps the fundamental themes and landmark moments of the influential history of Italian landscape painting, from medieval to contemporary art.

 

This lecture looks at the importance mountains and seas have played in mythology as well as modern and contemporary conceptions of natural spaces, which are inevitably beyond our reach.


Free and open to the public.

Currently active in all the major cities of the five continents, the ninety Italian Cultural Institutes serve as an ideal meeting place for intellectuals, artists, and cultural operatives, as well as for ordinary citizens, both Italian and foreign, who wish to establish or maintain a relationship with our country. By acting not only as a showcase and source of current information on Italy, but also as a driving force behind initiatives and projects of cultural cooperation, the Italian Cultural Institute has become a focal point for both the Italian communities abroad and the growing demand for Italian culture throughout the world.

By extending the role of Embassies and Consulates, the Italian Cultural Institutes offer the most effective tools for promoting a worldwide image of Italy as a center of production, preservation, and dissemination of culture from the Classical Age until today. Along with organizing cultural events in a vast array of areas, including art, music, cinema, theatre, dance, fashion, design, and photography, the Italian Cultural Institutes:

  • Offer the opportunity to learn Italian language and culture through the organization of courses, the management of libraries and the preparation of educational and editorial materials;
  • Provide the networks and the premises to facilitate the integration of Italian operators in the process of cultural exchange and production at an international level;
  • Provide information and logistic support to public and private cultural operators, both Italian and foreign;
  • Continuously support initiatives aimed at promoting an intercultural dialogue based on the principles of democracy and international solidarity.
