Aldo Moro High School – Reggio Emilia – Italy – is looking for partners to join in Erasmus/KA2 activities for 2015.
The topic we would like to work on is Piero della Francesca’s De Prospectiva Pingendi, housed in our local Panizzi Library. The Manuscript offers several multidisciplinary opportunities to develop collaborative partnerships within the scope of the Erasmus/KA2 project.
De Prospectiva Pingendi is an important mathematical book about perspective in painting, written during the Italian Renaissance by Piero della Francesca and lends itself to the organization of different workshops to expand different topics, from Maths and Geometry to Latin, English and Art according to students’ and teachers’ interests and needs.
Apart from a better knowledge of the Manuscript and its contents, we would like to emphasize that one of the main objectives we aim to achieve is the investigation into the present impact and applications (if there are any) of Piero della Francesca’s theories and tenets today.
Last but not least, we also aim at bringing the Manuscript to the attention of the local and global community as this significant masterpiece and its cultural heritage are still largely unknown to this day.
