Italian Renaissance Alive | Experts Lecture with Dr Gary Ianziti

The Renaissance was a distinct period in history marking the transition from the Middle Ages to Modernity, bringing about significant changes in Europe. Derived from the French word for ‘rebirth’, it was all about the reawakening in art and culture, and science and technology, an incredible time of creativity, curiosity and genius that continues to have a lasting impact on our world today.  

HOTA Gallery presents an exclusive series of Expert Lectures to extend your Italian Renaissance Aliveexperience. Each session will be delivered by an academic specialist in their field of Art History, Astronomy, or History, in relation to Renaissance events or themes. Join us for this incredible opportunity to hear firsthand from the experts in our region. 


How did the Renaissance Happen?

In this lecture, Italian Renaissance humanism specialist Dr Gary Ianziti will present the Renaissance as a dynamic cultural movement and describe some of the intellectual, political and social forces that shaped it.
