Do not miss the appointment with the symposium on "Da Caravaggio. Il San Giovanni Battista Costa e le sue copie" (in italian), moderated by Prof. Bruno Santi, to be held Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the Church of St. Stephen of the Augustinians of Empoli!
        It is a unique event, the meeting of some of the most respected scholars debating on the highly significant Saint John theme, which gained an extensive success both in Italy and abroad. Among others, Dr. Maria Cristina Terzaghi, University of Rome 3, will discuss the critical history of the image of St. John the Baptist, Dr. Angela Cerasuolo of Superintendence for the P.S.A.E. and for the Museum of the City of Naples and Caserta Royal Palace, will illustrate the restoration work on the copy of the Capodimonte Museum, which will be followed by the contribution of Dr. Nicole R. Myers, curator of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. She will shed light on the Kansas City version. Prof. Mina Gregori, who needs no presentation, will introduce the workshop.          
        What is the history of the little-known version of Empoli? It is an original or a copy? During the symposium the studies and the results of the recent restoration, strongly backed by the Venerabile Arciconfraternita della Misericordia of Empoli, will be presented. The works were directed by Dr. Cristina Gnoni Mavarelli S.B.A.P.S.E. of Florence and Prato and Pistoia and entrusted to the restorer Sandra Pucci.
        Art-Test will outline the results of diagnostic testing performed on the painting, including material analysis and Infrared reflectography, of which we cannot anticipate anything.
        Do not miss it! Saturday, April 11 from 9:30 am at the Church of St. Stephen of the Augustinians of Empoli. Admission is free. Save the date!!
