Flemish art – Italian art: a comparison in miniature

Arte_Fiamminga_italianaAre the most beautiful illuminated codices in the world Italian or Flemish? To answer this question Franco Cosimo Panini Editore is promoting a lively debate between Bernard Aikema and Antonio Pinelli: the Dutch professor will illustrate the marvels of Flemish art, while the Italian art historian will champion the cause of our Renaissance. To assist the discussion, facsimile editions of Italian and Flemish codices will be on display, from the Bible of Borso d’Este to the Très Riches Heures of the Duc de Berry. The debate will be chaired by Gianfranco Malafarina, editor of the journal “Alumina – Pagine miniate”, and will take place on 26 September at 12 noon in the Sala dello Stabat Mater of the Biblioteca dell’Archiginnasio in Bologna.
