Oct, 04 — 06 2012
In collaboration with the Accademia dei Lincei and under the patronage of the President of the Italian Republic, the Study Centre for Documentary Research into European Drama and Opera, is organising an international conference dedicated to the work of stage director and playwright Luigi Squarzina.
Curated by Maria Ida Biggi, the conference is divided into several sessions over three days and will be attended by university professors and junior researchers. The programme will be completed by two round tables in which collaborators will recall the fi gure of Squarzina and some of his actors will read from his work.
The conference has been organised to pay homage to a great artist who bequeathed his private library to the Study Centre for Documentary Research into European Drama and Opera at the Giorgio Cini Foundation.
The conference has the support of the Department of Philosophy and the Cultural Heritage at Ca’ Foscari University, the Fondazione Teatro La Fenice, the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio e Banca del Monte di Lugo and the Veneto Region. It will also have the media partnership of RAI RADIO 3.
