ART Web-Lecture by Prof. Costantino D'Orazio

Initiative of this Embassy, on 15 July 2020 was a video-conference on the relationship between African art and Italian art from antiquity to today, held at the Italian-Zambian Cultural Center, the first of a series of dedicated digital conferences to cultural issues.

The 'Web-Lecture' was conducted with an innovative methodology, as it was possible to follow it both online through the Zoom platform and, simultaneously, in person at the Italian-Zambian Cultural Center (ZICC) in Lusaka, in compliance with local health precaution provisions Covid-19 confirming the opportunity linked to the carrying out of events of this type in digital mode.

In his speech, the art historian Professor Costantino D'Orazio, in connection from Italy, illustrated the artistic path from the relationships between the Roman Empire and the ancient Egyptian civilization, highlighting the cultural relations between the two realities through the presentation of works up to the mechanism of exchange and mutual influence between Italian and African artists during the twentieth century and in the 2000s, with specific attention to the Zambian artists William Miko and Agness Buya Yombwe.
Participation in the “web-lecture” was significant both in the room and online.
