The Soundscape of Early Modern Venice

Soundscape_05-2017_webpage.jpg

International Conference

Venice, 24–27 May 2017

Organised by the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage), in collaboration with the Archivio Storico del Patriarcato di Venezia, the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Spazio Svizzero in Venice

On basis of new perspectives offered by urban history, humanistic geography and historical anthropology, the conference aims to bring together inter- and multidisciplinary approaches to the significance of “soundscape” in the context of the rich and complex urban system of early modern Venice. As a supreme example of “ceremonial city”, Venice is particularly suitable for investigating how soundscape interacts with urban space in the creation of an elaborate social and cultural identity.

The conference forms part of The Sound of Eternity. A Digital Platform for the Polyphonic Choir-Books of the Ducal Chapel of St Mark’s, Venice, a research project funded by the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (in continuation of The Sound of Eternity. Investigating the Choir Books of the Ducal Chapel of St Mark’s, Venice, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation).
