About the lecture:

Florence, as the birthplace of the European Renaissance, is one of the most famous art capitals in the world, but in the 1940s and 1950s, Florentines were also faced with the very serious and complex problem of post-war reconstruction of the ancient city center. This lecture will analyze and summarize the difficulties that Florence faced in architectural conservation after the end of the Second World War and the responses to them, taking into account the damage done to the area around the Ponte Vecchio during the war, as well as the cultural context of the post-war reconstruction, the various discussions and attempts to rebuild the city.

Palazzo Davanzati is a 14th-century merchant's house in Florence that has been preserved to this day. It represents the transition from medieval tower architecture to Renaissance palaces. Taking Palazzo Davanzati as an example, this lecture will introduce and analyze the interior spatial styles of late medieval Florentine houses, covering the development and evolution of 13th and 14th century houses in Florence, the interior spatial layout and decorations of the Palazzo Davanzati building, and the boom in the collection and trading of cultural relics and artifacts in Europe from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century.

All students and staff of Tianjin University are welcome.
