Paleography Seminars

Due to Covid-19 the onsite Paleography Seminars will be postponed to JUNE/JULY 2021.

The Medici Archive Project offers paleography and archival studies seminars at Palazzo Alberti: in the first weeks of January (Winter Seminars) and in June and July (Summer Seminars).

The principal aim of these seminar is to provide an introduction to Italian archives (with particular emphasis on Florentine archival collections); to examine in-depth various documentary typologies; to read diverse early modern scripts; and to learn how to plan research in Italian archives and libraries. Especially relevant for graduate students, university faculty, and museum curators working on Renaissance and early modern topics, this seminar is taught by a team of current and former MAP scholars, as well as university professors and other MAP-affiliated researchers.

The call for applications for next seminars will be posted shortly.

Tuition is US $ 1000.
