The Federico Zeri Foundation: An International Research Centre for Art History

Ottani Cavina, Anna

Unlike previous seminars where fellows of the Italian Academy presented research they were engaged on, I am privileged today to report on a reality that has kept the University of Bologna and a small band of scholars hard at work these last few years. Guided by a series of images, I would like to document Federico Zeri’s 1998 bequest to Bologna University, relate some cultural and biographical episodes featuring this great art historian (1921- 1998), and illustrate the library, the photo archive, and some of the Federico Zeri Foundation's achievements and projects.
