FREE WEBINAR | “Giotto – The Movie! – Cinematic Features in the Scrovegni Chapel”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
Giotto’s 14th-century fresco cycle in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, Italy, is perhaps the seminal motion picture in Western Art. Giotto’s mise en scène is full of expressive character types, landscapes, colour and visual arrangements. The sequential arrangement and juxtaposition of scenes produce a visual narrative of which most modern film directors would be envious. In a purely visual medium, Giotto is able to evoke sounds and smells, emotions and expectations, humor and terror. Join Dr. Rocky for this free webinar where he will examine the surprisingly modern cinematic quality of Giotto’s work.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
