The Snite Museum of Art Announces the Exhibition The World of Piranesi
SOUTH BEND, IN.- The Snite Museum of Art announces the exhibition The World of Piranesi on view from January 17 through February 28, 2010.

A multi-disciplinary approach to learning will be presented in this exhibition of ten etchings by Giovanni-Battista Piranesi 1720-1778, particularly directed towards students of Italian and architecture. In a series of practical, hands-on tasks, students will choose the prints for display, write descriptive wall-texts in Italian and English, prepare and act dialogues and skits in Italian, and make sketches of their own interpretations of Piranesi's designs.

In preparation for the exhibition, working with Lance Askildson, director of Notre Dame's Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures, students will create a website for their sketches and written commentaries on Piranesi's work. Giovanna Lenzi-Sandusky, professor of Italian language, will make the study of Piranesi's art and its influence will be the cultural component of her Italian language classes in the fall semester of 2009.

In February 2010, a series of invited speakers from Notre Dame and elsewhere will give talks for students and the public on the influence of Piranesi's work during and after his lifetime.

This exhibition and related events will be partially funded by a Learning Beyond the Classroom Faculty Lead Grant awarded by the Office of Undergraduate Studies and the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts.
