Giacomo Filippo Opicelli, Memorie della Biblioteca Ambrosiana
Latinist Massimo Rivoltella has devoted his studies to translating a fundamental work for the history of the Ambrosiana itself, which will be presented on February 12, 2019.
It is a seventeenth-century work hitherto never translated from Latin, an important source of information for both historians and scholars of the heritage of the Library: the Monumenta Bibliothecae Ambrosianae by Giacomo Filippo Opicelli, published in 1618. From this work of translation also arise new reflections on the use of Latin during the seventeenth century in Milan.
Tuesday February 12, 16.30 – Sala delle Accademie E.R. Galbiati
The volume will be presented by:
Angelo Bianchi (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore)
Marco Navoni (Veneranda Biblioteca Ambrosiana)
WHEN Thursday, February 12, 2019, 16.30
WHERE Veneranda Biblioteca Ambrosiana Piazza Pio XI 2, Milano
For Spring 2020 the Class of Latin and Greek studies organizes a cycle of three conferences entitled Intorno a un Codice. In each lecture, a scholar will present a particularly valuable Ambrosian codex, illustrating its features.
