Just a brief updating about my project, Il Leonardo Scomparso ( The Battle of Anghiari), started in 1996 and still quite alive. On April 15th, Prof. Martin Kemp gave an amazing lecture, It doesn’t look Like Leonardo, at Princeton University, Dept of Art and Archeology. He helpfully also presented one of my last painting, Anghiari Giallo e Blu, 2012, from the series about the Battle of Anghiari.

Virtual Journey through the Italian Art Labyrinth:
Five meetings with artist and art historian Vittoria Chierici
Saturdays 2:00 – 4:00 pm, October 20, 27, November 3, 10, 17
Vittoria Chierici, a prominent artist from Bologna, will present Italy as a collection of small towns enriched by their historic centers bearing profound histories that lead to extending paths in art, culture, and time. Students attending will construct a virtual voyage based on places where they have visited or have yet to see. Most of these unique spots are off the tourist path and will present our participants with terminology not only useful for a journey but leading to a greater understanding of their artistic culture.
Chierici will conduct her journeys primarily in Italian.
