A cura di Stefania Ermidoro e Cecilia Riva in collaborazione con Lucio Milano.
Atti del convegno promosso dall’istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti e Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici (Venezia, 5-6 marzo 2018.

Rethinking Layard 1817-2017 marked the bicentenary of the birth of the famous archaeologist and diplomat Austen Henry Layard (1817-1894). The volume brings together contributions to the international two-day conference, which was organised by Stefania Ermidoro and Cecilia Riva, with the support of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere e Arti and Scuola Dottorale in Storia delle Arti of Ca’ Foscari University. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the essays collected in this volume intend to expand and cross-relate new, unpublished materials about Layard and his activities, achievements, and long-term legacy in nineteenth-century London and Venice. Particular attention is placed upon Layard’s contribution to art, archaeology, politics, and diplomacy.
