Event description

Description

Celebrated in antiquity as a place of studied leisure, Tibur (modern-day Tivoli) became known during the Renaissance for the spectacle of its ruined temples and villas. Birkbeck’s Peter Fane-Saunders explores the contrasting cases of two sixteenth-century architects, Antonio da Sangallo the Younger and Pirro Ligorio, and what their analyses of sites in Tivoli tell us about Renaissance engagement with antique texts, poetry and architecture – and about the workings of the Renaissance mind.

This event is part of Birkbeck Arts Week 2017 - see the full programme here.
