Muscarelle Members Lecture: Medici Villas with Elaine Ruffolo
March 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Muscarelle’s spring Selected Topics in Architecture lecture series will focus on the flourishing Renaissance period, when architectural innovation resulted in some of the world’s most breathtaking and magnificent structures.
We invite Muscarelle Members to join us for a special virtual lecture with Art Historian Elaine Ruffolo focused on Medici Villas.
From the 14th to the 18th century, the Medici family dominated European life. While promoting both arts and sciences, the Medici helped create a new style of architecture, present a new idea of villa life and promote the novel idea of living in harmony with nature. Learn about a selection of Medici patrons’ public interests and private passions, as well as the architects they employed, focusing on examples of architecture from the Medieval to Mannerist periods.
