Conference: La Gioconda. Style, history, geography and anatomy of a sixteenth-century portrait

Speakers: prof. Edoardo Villata (Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan)

The Association of alumni of the Liceo Ginnasio “A. Racchetti ”- Crema organized the conference:" The Mona Lisa. Style, history, geography and anatomy of a sixteenth-century portrait "which will be held on Friday 11 January 2019 at 4.00 pm in the Cremonesi room of the Civic Museum of Crema and Cremasco.

When and where was the Mona Lisa painted? Who does it represent? Indeed, is it really a portrait or not rather a symbolic figure? To these questions scholars have given the most diverse and irreconcilable answers, creating a tangle of hypotheses. Thus was created that typical modern product which is the myth of the Mona Lisa. You can orient yourself only by looking at it for what it is: a painted table from the early sixteenth century in Italy. A close reading of the technique (also in light of the recent scientific investigations to which it has been subjected), of the style and, in filigree, of contemporary documents and sources, may perhaps allow the solution of too many enigmas that have gathered around this painting.

The speaker of the conference will be Professor Edoardo Villata, former guest of our Association in June 2015 on the occasion of the Leonardo da Vinci exhibition. 1452-1519, curated by Pietro Cesare Marani and Maria Teresa Fiorio (Milan, Palazzo Reale, April 16 - July 19 2015).
