Silvia Malaguzzi - The jewels in the paintings of the Uffizi

Lecture in Italian - Vasari Auditorium – 6th March 2019

Silvia Malaguzzi makes a survey by searching for clues among the Italian masters' paintings of the Uffizi. This careful study shows how a witty flair is hidden behind apparently frivolous ornaments.
The analysis of the gems and jewels adorning the paintings' figures reveal many secrets and curiosities concerning the humanistic symbolism and iconography of the Gothic-Renaissance era, which unveil truths that would otherwise have remained imprisoned on the canvases.
