The 2010 Warwick-Newberry Summer Workshop at the Palazzo Pesaro-Papafava, Venice.

The Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies and the University of Warwick’s Centre for the Study of the Renaissance have collaborated since 2005 on two series of programs funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The series comprised day-long workshops, summer institutes, and visiting research fellowships, centering on an annual theme.
