La Scuola del Mondo

€ 26,00

This volume is issued on the occasion of the exhibition I Farnese. Architettura, Arte, Potere (Parma, Complesso Monumentale della Pilotta, 18 March – 31 July 2022) and accompanies the catalogue. From the perspective of global history, the collection of essays reinterprets the fascinating story of a family of great power, with close ties to the papal court, as well as the courts of the Habsburgs and the royals of Portugal, and a protagonist of the modern age between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, an era of profound political and cultural changes and tumultuous geographical expansion.

Thirteen texts by leading Italian and international scholars, such as Salvatore Settis, Serge Gruzinski and David Abulafia, characterized by a historical investigation that, unlike the traditional approach focused on the study of (mainly Western) nation states, decentres the gaze and extends it to the relations that the Farnese family formed with global cultures and art as well as social and political events. An analysis that connects the history of the dynasty with that of an evolving world and moves the centre of gravity from Parma and Rome to well beyond the Mediterranean.
