The Renaissance Model: The Italian Way to Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Please join us for a talk by Luca Cottini on the Renaissance model and its persistence through the twentieth century in Italy. What is the relationship between sixteenth-century archetypes and the twentieth-century Renaissance of Italian style in fashion and design? Why does Italy's industrial success still lie in the Renaissance model?
Luca Cottini is Associate Professor of Italian Studies at Villanova University, and host/creator of the Italian Innovators YouTube project. He holds a PhD from Harvard University, a MA from the University of Notre Dame, and a BA from the University of Milan.
