  • Antonella Trotta (Autor/in)


What makes the Renaissance cultural capital? The paper will highlight the process of defining the image of Renaissance as an important and durable part of public history in the USA in the twentieth century. In the collections of the tycoons of the American Renaissance, in the Lochoff Cloister and in Andy Warhol's Details of Renaissance Painting series, the Renaissance artifacts constitute a material legacy to be admired, copied, publicized, invented and which create ad re-create the American past and present.
