Anatomy and Art in Italian Renaissance


Anatomy and Art in Italian Renaissance

Date and Time

Thursday, October 17, 2013 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.


Mother Rosalie Hill Hall, Warren Aud




Italy’s medieval universities established the study of human anatomy for medical professionals. To heighten their art, Renaissance masters clandestinely studied anatomy through human dissection. An anatomy professor at San Diego Miramar College and a USD alumnus, Petti studies the relationship between art and science, focusing on the work of great Italian Renaissance masters. His talk will examine the profound nexus between art and science, and the history of anatomy education in the university.

Sponsored by the Department of Languages and Literatures with a grant from the ESFI fund, and by the School of Leadership Studies.

The event is free and open to the public.
