Professor Marina Wallace personally invites you to her Professorial Platform Lecture event, on Thursday 23 May at 18:30
Professor Wallace will be introduced by Professor Martin Kemp FBA, Emeritus Professor in the History of Art at Trinity College, Oxford University.
This lecture is mainly based on Professor Wallace’s research for Volume X of La Cultura Italiana published by UTET in 2010. The volume is in Italian and, by translating it, Professor Wallace can now share it with colleagues, students and friends. The relationship that each citizen has with his/her own country and culture is mediated by personal experiences matured during a lifetime. It is a delicate task to identify what motivates the consciousness of “insiders” of a culture whilst, at the same time, stimulating the interest of outsiders. To be able to observe the prodigious artistic production of one’s own country from the point of view of another culture and another genetic material offers fresh cues. Curiosity, prodded by geographical and physical distance, helps to identify in a schematic way those characteristics that define a country’s visual culture in a decisively distinctive way.
