Leon Grek - Staging the City: Comic Translation in Rome and London

  • Lunedì, 6 Marzo 2017 - 6:30pm
AAR Lecture Room
Rome

In both classical antiquity and the European Renaissance, dramatic comedy was the literary genre most closely associated with the city, and with the everyday lives of its urban audiences. It was also among the most mobile of cultural forms. Festival-goers in Republican Rome watched Latin translations of Greek comedies set in Athens, Ephesus, and Cyrene; sixteenth-century Ferrarese nobles had a taste for Italian adaptations of Roman comedies with local settings; and audiences at London’s Globe Theater enjoyed English imitations of classicizing Italian comedies, set in Florence, Venice, and Padua. This talk will consider the interactions between these two dynamics – comic urbanism on the one hand, comic translation on the other – in Rome at the beginning of the second century BCE, and in London at the end of the sixteenth century CE. In both cases, I will suggest, comic translation played an important role in helping to define the status of the rapidly expanding, but still peripheral imperial metropolis in relation to its broader Mediterranean cultural world.

Leon Grek is the Paul Mellon / Frank Brown Rome Prize Fellow in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies at the American Academy in Rome and a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Comparative Literature at Princeton University, New Jersey.

The shoptalk will be held in English. You can watch this event livestreamed at https://livestream.com/aarome.

Tomaso De Luca - A Single Man - Desire and Architecture in Public and Private Spaces

  • Mercoledì, 8 Marzo 2017 - 6:30pm
Studio 303

Tomaso De Luca will focus on architecture as a mise en scène capable of ordering and exhibiting its content, of responding to desire or even of engendering it. In the postwar West, the processes of spectacularization and performativity, traditionally characteristic of the architecture of public buildings, spread to private residences as well, providing a glimpse into the rise of media technology as we know it today. The talk will examine the role of the single man, and the correlation between gender, desire, art and architecture. 

Tomaso De Luca is the Cy Twombly Italian Fellow in Visual Arts at the American Academy in Rome. 

The shoptalk will be given in English.

Michael Queenland - Points of Convergence

  • Lunedì, 13 Marzo 2017 - 6:30pm
Studio 126

In this talk, focusing primarily on ongoing work begun here in Rome of collecting city detritus and transforming it through various strategies of ordering, patterning, and flattening, Michael Queenland will discuss the urban context as a source of inspiration and discovery; as a space where the social, temporal and aesthetic converge accidentally, momentarily, and coincidentally from multiple points of view.

Michael Queenland is the Joseph H. Hazen Rome Prize Fellow in Visual Arts at the American Academy in Rome.

Conversations/Conversazioni

David Lang e Nicola Piovani - Soundtracks

  • Martedì, 14 Marzo 2017 - 6:00pm
Villa Aurelia
Rome

L’evento è parte della serie Nuove ricerche sulle arti e sulle discipline umanistiche: i classici americani.

Una conversazione tra il Premio Pulitzer David Lang e il Premio Oscar Nicola Piovani che racconteranno le loro produzioni per il cinema e discuteranno dell’importanza della colonna sonora all’interno delle narrazioni filmiche.

Compositore americano, David Lang, ha contribuito alla colonna sonora del film di Paolo Sorrentino La Grande Bellezza (2013), una vera e propria ode alla Città Eterna, con due brani I Lie e World to Come, premiato al Festival di Cannes nel 2013 prima di vincere l’Oscar come miglior film straniero alla 86esima edizione degli Academy Awards. Nella famosa ed indimenticabile scena d’apertura, un coro femminile canta una composizione minimalista sacra realizzata da Lang tra le volte di una delle fontane più famose della Capitale, quella dell’Acqua Paola al Gianicolo. Per La Giovinezza (2015) di Sorrentino, invece, Lang ha composto Simple Song #3 , che ha ottenuto la candidatura all’Oscar e che riassume la complessa vita emotiva di un compositore e direttore d’orchestra in pensione, interpretato da Michael Caine, in vacanza in un felliniano centro benessere in Svizzera. David Lang è residente presso l’American Academy in Rome per la primavera 2017.

Il Maestro Nicola Piovani è attualmente uno dei più noti compositori di colonne sonore di film italiani, con oltre 130 produzioni al suo attivo, tra cui La notte di San Lorenzo (1982), Kaos (1984), entrambi diretti da Paolo e Vittorio Taviani e Ginger e Fred (1986), Intervista (1987), e La voce della luna (1990) di Federico Fellini. Nel 1998, Piovani ha vinto l'Oscar per la colonna sonora del celebre film di Roberto Benigni La vita è bella.

L’evento sarà in lingua inglese e italiana. È prevista la traduzione simultanea.

Danielle Simon - "Canta la radio!": Italian opera on the airwaves, 1925-1940

  • Mercoledì, 29 Marzo 2017 - 6:30pm
AAR Lecture Room
Rome

The centrality of opera for early Italian radio cannot be overstated. In 1931, EIAR (the Ente Italiano Audizioni Radiofoniche) broadcast sixty-nine broadcasts of fifty-four complete operas, a rate that would continue to increase over the next several decades. But producers of opera confronted challenges when translating the genre from stage to airwaves, not least of which was the radio’s lack of image. Some viewed the radio as an opportunity to perform new operas featuring otherwise inaccessible interior voices; others saw broadcasts of nineteenth-century opera as nation-building tools for transmitting culture and italianità. This talk will explore the challenges and possibilities opera presented during the early decades of Italian radio broadcasting, at a time when the new medium seemed to offer endless frontiers to explore culture, identity, and the human.

Danielle Simon is the Millicent Mercer Johnsen Rome Prize Fellows in Modern Italian Studies at the American Academy in Rome and a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Music at the University of California, Berkeley.

The shoptalk will be held in English. You can watch this event livestreamed at https://livestream.com/aarome.

Conference

Renaissance Society of America (RSA)

  • da Giovedì, 30 Marzo 2017 - 9:00am a Sabato, 1 Aprile 2017 - 6:00pm
The Palmer House Hilton - Chicago

AAR-SOF will sponsor five panels at the Chicago 2017 meeting of the RSA. To attend please register at: http://www.rsa.org/page/2017Chicago

Reading the Symbols
30 March 2017, 10:30am-12:00pm
Palmer House Hilton, 7th floor, LaSalle 2

Reading the Symbols: Pathways in Renaissance Iconography
Chair: Marco Antonio Piana (McGill University)
During the Renaissance, the relationship between word and image was closely subordinated to specific cultural dynamics. The conception of iconography, tied to visual or textual archetypes, matured with the development of humanism, which introduced a new way of interpreting literary and material sources and provided new perspectives on the classical past. The aim of this panel is to analyze and discuss a range of sixteenth-century iconographies in order to better understand the intellectual dynamics behind their construction. Focus will fall on semantic shifts and innovative symbolism.

Thomism and Renaissance I
1 April 2017, 8:30am-10:am
Palmer House Hilton, 7th floor, Clark 10

Thomism and Renaissance II
1 April 2017, 10:30am-12:00pm

Thomism and Renaissance
Chair: Alison Frazier (University of Texas at Austin, FAAR‘98)
Two panels commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of Paul Oskar Kristeller's "Le Thomisme et la pensee italienne de la Renaissance" (1967) which argued the continuity, during the era of renaissance humanism, of philosophical positions and methods associated with medieval scholasticism. Each panel features an eminent senior historian of philosophy as respondent.

Two panels on church interiors in the pre- and post-Tridentine era as complex sites for the elaborate self-representation of individuals, families, and social groups. Panelists present their historical, philological, and iconographic research to offer new insights about some of Rome's most venerable liturgical sites.
