THE JOURNAL | Venezia Arti
Venezia Arti is a journal of the Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice on the history of the arts. VA was founded in 1987 by Wladimiro Dorigo and Giuseppe Mazzariol, a new series directed by Silvia Burini and Giovanni Maria Fara begins in 2019. The journal welcomes scholars of all disciplines focusing on the arts and encourages an interdisciplinary and international approach, capable of systematically and critically doing research on events and problems in the artistic culture. Venezia Arti aims to become a sound reference point for medieval, modern and contemporary art, the visual and performing arts, and all the main themes of the international methodological debate.
The journal is annual and undergoes a double-blind peer review, which is carried out both for paper and digital (open access) editions by Edizioni Ca’ Foscari. It is characterised by thematic calls and a miscellaneous section in which contributions of young emerging scholars are very well accepted.

TOPIC AND ISSUES | The Body of Art
The problem of the body and its representation has for some decades been considered one of the major themes in the history of culture and is a subject of an enquiry that is dealt with by various disciplines. Its centrality in the development of the scientific, artistic and historical thought of the medieval, modern and contemporary age, as well as in a historiographical and methodological reflection, and in the different approaches that define Western civilization in a non-unique way, will be the topic of the next issue of Venezia Arti. The various forms of body representation, its design, its visions, its deformations, and also the many forms of relationship that the body establishes inside the work of art itself – from the dynamics of creation to the engaging relationship with the viewer, to the experienced cognitive backgrounds – will be inquired, from the canon to the different post-human declinations.
