The 8×8: storie per 8 secoli initiative continues with a series of events on Saturday, November 5 and Saturday, November 19. The events, coordinated by Giovanni Bianchi, Michele Cupitò and Paola Zanovello, explore the history of the University of Padua during the nineteenth century.
Proposed by the professors and researchers of the Department of Cultural Heritage (DBC), the multidisciplinary schedule of events aims to illustrate the connection between academic and city life in celebration of the 800th Anniversary of the University of Padua.
The second day of events begins in the Sala Rossini of Caffè Pedrocchi with a conference that welcomes Michele Cuoitò and Silvia Paltineri on “Il Pedrocchi, luogo d’incontri e di cultura a Padova nell’800: alcuni personaggi significativi nella storia dell’archeologia”.
Events continue in the afternoon with the opportunity to join a thematic itinerary in Padua of “Sguardi al femminile. Padova e il suo territorio nel Grand Tour.”
At 6 pm, Silvia Gorgi, Vittorio Attene, and Bruna Laura Filippini come to the stage for a theatrical performance of Il collezionista di crani. L’incredibile storia di Francesco Cortese followed by a reading of I luoghi e i racconti più strani di Padova by Silvia Gorgi.
Guests can join a guided tour of the skull collection held in the Medicine Hall of Palazzo Bo and its historic Anatomical.
