As part of a cooperation project involving the Università di Padova and the Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO) – VI Missione Lavoro, the Theatre Study Centre is hosting a lecture on the architect Lina Bo Bardi by Professor Evelyn Furquim Werneck Lima from the Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro – Laboratório de Estudos do Espaço Teatral e Memória Urbana.

Entitled Lina Bo Bardi’s contribution to theatre architecture and stage design in Brazil, the lecture will consider examples of Bardi’s projects for redesigned or refurbished theatre interiors as well as stage designs. Prof. Lima will also discuss the architect’s Marxist outlook and her work for theatre and the cultural heritage in general.
