Chair: Lorenzo Pesci
The seminar addresses the evolution of various decorative types used in textiles – flower and plant motifs and their meanings – from late medieval times to the Renaissance, as well as the development of taste and the idea of ‘fashion’ in clothing and furnishings.
The material presented, paradigms of the very best of the period’s textile production, first and foremost Italian, is made up in large part of a vast iconographic repertory, projected in the classroom, and for the rest, exhibition of a selected sampler of period textile products: a series of ‘historic’ church paraments conserved over the centuries by the territory’s churches.
