Intorno a un testo 2019
Linked to the tradition of Letture di Nuovi Classici of the Ambrosiana, since 2014 a new series of meetings entitled Intorno a un testo has been promoted by the Class of Greek and Latin Studies.
Also in January and February 2019, three scholars will read and interpret a text by an important author of Greek and Latin classicism and the Middle Ages, presenting it with a series of reflections that are aimed at both specialists and interested citizens.
