At the fourth research seminar of the PerformArt project, coordinated by Alexandra Nigito, we welcomed Berthold Over (speaker, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz), Roberto Gigliucci (speaker, Università La Sapienza, Rome) and Jean Boutier (discussant, EHESS). Collaborative work at this seminar aimed to draw up a portrait of the gentleman-librettist.

The seminar was open to the public, and was held in the Conference Hall of the Ecole française de Rome (Piazza Navona, 62) from 9.30am to 1pm.
