Exhibit talk and reception: "The World of Piranesi"


Location: Scholz Family Works on Paper Gallery, Snite Museum of Art

A multi-disciplinary approach to learning will be presented in this exhibition of ten etchings by Giovanni-Battista Piranesi 1720-1778, particularly directed towards students of Italian and architecture. In a series of practical, hands-on tasks, students will choose the prints for display, write descriptive wall-texts in Italian and English, prepare and act dialogues and skits in Italian, and make sketches of their own interpretations of Piranesi’s designs.
