Roman Chapels of the Cinquecento and Seicento Book Launch

Roma Tre, Patrizia Tosini, Chiara Franceschini

Susanne Kubersky-Piredda (Bibliotheca Hertziana, Rome) and Patrizia Cavazzini (Rome) presented Chapel of the Cinquecento and Seicento in the Churces of Rome, ed. by Chiara Franceschini, Steven F. Ostrow, and Patrizia Tosini (Milan 2020), in an online event organised by Patrizia Tosini at Roma Tre. The Editors’ Introduction and Chiara Franceschini’s chapter are now available here.

Susanne Kubersky and Patrizia Cavazzini engaged in a most interesting presentation of the many aspects and sides of Early Modern Roman chapels, discussing visual elements relating to identity, prestige and private cult in 16th and 17th century Rome. The editors and authors of the book, as well as many students from Roma Tre and other interested participants, intervened in the following discussion.

This book was published last year. The introduction by the Editors and Chiara Franceschini’s chapter in this book are now available here:
