“Public Renaissance: What Italian Piazzas Were For”
WEBINAR RECORDING | “Public Renaissance: What Italian Piazzas Were For”
Presented by Dr. Fabrizio Nevola
With Additional Commentary by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
So much is the Italian word piazza a commonplace of how we understand public space that we use the word in English – especially when describing a form of urban space that is rich in public amenities and used for leisure activities. Dr. Fabrizio Nevola offers a wide-ranging discussion based on his recent book Street Life in Renaissance Italy (Yale University Press, 2020) to talk about how the often grand set-pieces of Renaissance urban design came to life during that period through grand ceremonials but also everyday use.
The webinar recording consists of a 45-minute lecture.
