Join us for two papers by Francesca Masiero and Umberto Veronesi, which promise a fascinating look at both early modern alchemical practices and humanist education. Umberto Veronesi is a PhD researcher based in UCL's Archaeology department whose work focuses on the alchemical production of glass and Francesca Masiero's PhD (UCL, Italian) explores the teaching and learning practices adopted in the schools of 15th and 16th century Venice.
The papers will be followed by questions and discussion, and accompanied by some drinks and nibbles.
'The material side of al/chemical laboratories. Distillation equipment from Oberstockstall, Austria' - Umberto Veronesi, UCL Archaeology.
'Leading Humanist Education: the Premises to the Opening of the First Public School in Venice' - Francesca Masiero, UCL Italian.
This event is part of the Medieval, Renaissance and Early Modern Studies (MREMS) seminar series.
