The Palace of the Rising Sun

On December 13-14, 2016 Palazzo Rucellai hosted a conference on cultural relationships and comparisons between Italy and Japan from the late Middle Ages to the present. Co-sponsored by ISI Florence, University of Kanazawa, and Università di Firenze, “Italia e Giappone a Confronto: Cultura, Psicologia, Arti” brought together Italian and Japanese experts from many different scholarly backgrounds, including aesthetics, anthropology, architecture, art history, history, literature, music, philosophy, and psychology. As is customary with ISI Florence symposia, the proceedings will be published within 18 months of the event.
