CFP: Facciate parlanti
Opus incertum, 8 (2022)
Edited by Alessandro Brodini and Maddalena Spagnolo
Whether they were realized, or only projected in drawings, the “facciate parlanti” engaged in a close dialogue with public spaces and their audience. While the inscriptions could be in different languages and media (carved on stone, graffite or painted), they always retained a particular relationship with the building itself.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the relationship between inscriptions and the patron’s ambitions and culture, the role of literati, iconographical advisers and antiquari and the social and urban context of the building.
We welcome papers in Italian, English, French, German and Spanish. An abstract of 500 words ca., and a brief cv, preferably in English or Italian, can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
