A keynote event tied of the 2019-20 Stuckman Visiting Professorship in Interdiscipinary Design, "Italian Imprints" will explore the shifting importance of Italian architecture, design, and cities in the history of twentieth-century architecture.
Over the course of two days, speakers from around the world will explore the ways in which Italy’s status in this field has changed in response to changes in the architectural history’s geography, thematics and evidentiary basis, as well as new conditions in architectural and art historical education, travel and the circulation of ideas through media.
Speakers will include specialists in the architecture, design, and urbanism of Italy, as well as experts in subjects that throw Italy’s enduring prominence in architecture’s historical consciousness into productive relief.
The event is organized by Denise Costanzo, assistant professor of architecture, and Andrew Leach of the University of Sydney, this year’s Stuckeman Visiting Professor in Interdisciplinary Design.
The symposium is open to the public. There are no attendance fees.
The program will be published by the end of November.
