Item description for Atlante, Percorsi visivi: Suburbio, Vaticano, Rione Monti (La Pittura Medievale a Roma, Atlante) by Maria Andaloro...

About the Series:Directors: Maria Andalaro and Serena Romano. Contributors: Giulia Bordi, Jerome Croisier, Filipe Dos Santos, Geraldine Leardi, and Stefania Pennesi. The goal of the Corpus and Atlante research project is to offer both a comprehensive listing and an extensive study of all existing medieval wall paintings, mosaics and icons, many of which still adorn several sacred monuments in Rome. But the project also tracks every sign and evidence of this pictorial heritage throughout the centuries and its imprint on Western history and collective memory. Surprisingly enough, watercolours, drawings, copies, antique photographs, and descriptions all contribute to our better knowledge of medieval painting in Rome, whether the original artpiece is lost or an early copy shows, for example, various states of preservation, or (now) invisible restoration, thus documenting a so-called 'critical account' of a monument and its wall covering. There are two main reasons for this project. On the one hand, a desire to write - rewrite - the history of painting in Rome. This is the task assigned to the Corpus volumes with their plausible chronological listing and analytical study of every single artwork that we know, or merely know of - the first such large-scale critical inventory ever attempted. On the other hand, a desire to go beyond the mere rewriting of the history of painting and offer a new approach to structuring and sharing the newly-gained information. In the Atlante approach, therefore, it is not chronology but contextual accuracy that matters: the paintings, mosaics, icons and copies of lost artpieces are presented in their original context, i.e. on the walls of the sacred monuments of Rome. State-of-the-art digital technology, planimetry and 3D make the impossible come true as frescoes unfold anew on their original supports and the various decorative stages of a particular monument are made visible - and simultaneously, as the case may be - to visitors as they follow a 3D visit. The lavish decorative environment of medieval Rome thus comes to life. All through the Middle Ages, Rome's churches, basilicas, bishops' residences, cardinals' and senators' palaces, monasteries and nunneries were the battlegrounds of what could be called a media warfare, and the extraordinary refined artistic means with which it was fought certainly hold their own against modern-day communication techniques. Completed in 2006, the first phase of the project will lead to the publication of two volumes of Corpus (Volume 1: IV-V c.; Volume 4: XI-XII c.) and one volume of Atlante (Volume 1) dedicated to the study of 32 historical monuments as pictorial contexts, all located outside the city limits of Rome, in the suburbs, inside the Vatican and in the Monti district.
