Art Historian Marilena Caciorgna, an expert on symbolic representations of women in art, will discuss issues of iconography, symbolism and meaning in relation to the Acton Collection. Various mythological subjects (some of which arise from Ovid´s Metamorphoses) are mysteriously entwined with allegorical themes and domesticity scenes. Caciorgna’s investigation encourages NYU Florence students to explore the issues of gender and power in the art historical context.
