Abstract

This is the fourth of a four-session series aiming to discuss how the transformative character of the Trecento is indebted to cultural exchanges, movement of artists and patrons, circulation of models and ideas across Italy, Europe, the Mediterranean and beyond. This session explores Armenian and Indo-Mediterranean trajectories. Paper -a takes the sea route to explore processes of artistic transfer across media, materials and geographical spaces. Paper -b engages with movement of people, ideas and objects between Armenia, Rome and Genoa. The remaining time will be devoted to a group discussion led by Claudia Bolgia and Luca Palozzi.
