Venice and Aristotle (c. 1450–c. 1600): From Greek and Latin to the Vernacular

Exhibition in the Sala Sansoviniana

Sale monumentali della Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana

Venice (21 April–19 May 2016)

This exhibition (along with its accompanying catalogue) aims to offer a broad representation of Renaissance Aristotelianism, paying particular attention to the role Venice played in the dissemination of this powerful current of thought. Chronologically it starts with the rich collection of manuscripts of the humanist and Greek émigré Basilios Bessarion (†1472), which formed the first nucleus of the Marciana Library in Venice. It then takes into consideration the diffusion of Aristotle’s works through the art of print until the end of the sixteenth century. As one of the great capitals of the European printing industry, Venice played a preeminent role in this phenomenon.
