About the Presentation:
Leonardo da Vinci
Cinque secoli di un mito
Cinquecento anni dopo la sua morte, Leonardo continua ad attirare folle di visitatori, a sfidare studiosi e biografi, e a ispirare scrittori, artisti e visionari di tutto il mondo. Milioni di pagine sono state scritte su di lui nel corso dei secoli, ma la sua persona rimane ancora in gran parte avvolta nel mistero. In questo incontro esploreremo la vita e le opere, il contributo innovativo e l’eredità culturale di questa icona del Rinascimento italiano, che ha posto domande cruciali e trovato risposte spesso centinaia di anni in anticipo sui tempi.
Leonardo da Vinci
A Five-Century Lasting Myth
Five hundred years after his death, Leonardo continues to attract crowds of visitors, to challenge scholars and biographers, and to inspire novelists, artists, and visionary innovators around the world. Despite the millions of pages written about him over the centuries, his person still remains mostly shrouded in mystery. In this meeting we will explore the life and works, the innovative contribution and cultural heritage of this Renaissance man icon, who asked crucial questions and found answers often hundreds of years ahead of his time.
DANTE ALIGHIERI SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON
Live Meeting COVID Guidelines
Even as COVID variants continue to plague the population, we are trying to return to offering live meetings for Dante this season. We’ve all been longing for a return to shared meals, and since this is foundational to Dante activities, we want to make it possible. Following the guidelines and regulations now in place by many workplaces, public venues and community groups, the Dante Board of Directors has agreed to the guidelines listed below as an acceptable plan to keep us as safe as possible when meeting in person.
1) Please do not attend if you have been exposed to COVID, or are experiencing any symptoms of illness. We will make best efforts to record the presentations so that those who cannot attend in person can enjoy them afterwards. There will also be a few meetings presented on ZOOM instead of live this season, for all to enjoy like last year.
2) Masks are encouraged. Although no longer required, we encourage attendees to wear masks when not eating or drinking.
Thank you again for your understanding and observance of these guidelines. Let’s work together to control COVID!!!
