Location: Harold M. Williams Auditorium
Actor, director, and art historian Peter Weller is well known for his starring role in the movie Robocop and more recently his appearances on the television series 24 and Dexter and as the host of the History Channel series Engineering an Empire. It is less widely known that Weller has studied art history, lectured, and lived in Florence. In a conversation with Christine Sciacca, assistant curator of Manuscripts and organizer of the exhibition Florence at the Dawn of the Renaissance: Painting and Illumination, 13001350, Weller draws on his unique experiences to discuss the dynamic artistic, political, economic, and religious climate that flourished in early Renaissance Florence.
