Town and Country: The Life of an Italian Prince

21 September 2010 – 8 February 2011

What transformed the daily life of a Renaissance Prince from the misery of a dank castle to a civilised environment full of light, culture and the arts?

In this rich and varied series of lectures, we’ll unravel the lives of ten great families, whose histories take us from the late 15th century to the mid 17th century and from the city to the country. You’ll have the opportunity to study Italian gardens, art, architecture and sculpture, as well as gem collecting, music and poetry.
