The Artistic Heritage of Modena: Wounded Art

Stefano Casciu, Soprintendente per i Beni Storici, Artistici ed Etnoantropologici di Modena e Reggio Emilia, discusses the effect of the May 2012 earthquake on the artistic heritage of Modena, Italy. In the wake of building collapses, art historians and conservators salvaged as many works of art as possible, many of which are currently being restored.

Recorded April 20, 2013

This program was part of the lecture series The Artistic Heritage of Modena, Italy: From the Court of Francesco I d'Este to the 2012 Earthquake, presented in conjunction with the exhibition Velázquez's Portrait of Duke Francesco I d'Este: A Masterpiece from the Galleria Estense, Modena, on view April 16–July 14, 2013.
