The Christopher G. Wagstaff Italian Film Collection will be formally incorporated into the Hesburgh Libraries’ Collections on Thursday, 6 April 2017. The centerpiece of the event is a short talk by Professor Chris Wagstaff, formerly of the University of Reading in the UK, whose kind donation of his film collection has substantially enriched Notre Dame’s Italian film holdings.

Lecture: “Genesis, Events, and Incidents of Raphael’s Preparatory Cartoon of the School of Athens” - Alberto Rocca (Director of the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, Milan)

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Annenberg Auditorium, Snite Museum

Rev. Dr. Alberto Rocca, the director of the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana in Milan, will deliver a public lecture, “Genesis, Events, and Incidents of Raphael’s Preparatory Cartoon of the School of Athens,” featuring the historic conservation treatment this drawing is currently undergoing. Remarkable for its sheer size -- it measures 26 x 9 feet -- and age, Raphael’s drawing for one of the western world’s most recognized masterpieces was made around 1508 to transfer the design to the wall.

Free and open to the public.
