to exert a strong influence on us. The proposed conference aims to
explore how antiquity was perceived from the Middle Ages through the
contemporary period.

history, the survival or revival of antiquity during the Middle Ages,
the Renaissance or the early modern period, or the transmission of
literary or artistic models. Possible areas of exploration are the

classical texts, the interpretation of mythology and the metamorphoses

influence of the artist in the rediscovery and dissemination of material
remains of ancient world.
