As part of the 800th anniversary of the University of Padua, the Department of Cultural Heritage launches Rivoluzioni review, that allows those from Italian culture to give a voice to a famous alumnus by sharing their stories and life’s work. The review is organized by the Gabinetto di Lettura Association, based on a project by Paola Cattaneo.
This meeting welcomes actor, director, and singer David Riondino, as he pays tribute to Andrea Vesalius (1514-1564), father of modern anatomy, University of Padua student and professor.
The meeting includes a musical performance by Unipd’s Concentus Musicus Patavinus, coordinated within the Cultural Heritage Department. This Rivoluzione is illustrated through music and an original dialogue alongside the portrait of the famous University of Padua alumni.
The Rivoluzione review aims to create a unique and original narrative of historical biographies with new and interesting points of view. The review is a tribute to the 800 years of revolutionary knowledge, culture and traditions of which the University of Padua has sustained over the centuries. Each appointment is accompanied by a musical performance, made possible thanks to the organizational and extraordinary collaboration of the Orchestra Foundation of Padua and Veneto (OPV).
Entrance is free. Reservation is requested.
