As part of the events to mark the third centenary of the birth of Carlo Gozzi (1720-1806), the Institute of Theatre and Opera is holding an international conference on the celebrated Venetian playwright, in collaboration with Ca’ Foscari University, Venice, University of Verona, the Istituto Internazionale per la Ricerca Teatrale (IIRT) and the Veneto Region (which has co-financed the conference as one of its “major events” in 2020).

Scholars and experts will explore the role of Gozzi in the history of Italian and international theatre and illustrate the rediscovery of numerous manuscripts, which now constitute the largest archive of an 18th-century European playwright; these works will be published in a national edition currently in production.

 

The international conference will be held online and the video of the sessions will be published on the Fondazione Giorgio Cini Youtube Channel.
