This year, the specialisation course will be held in the form of a workshop (“Trecento Sources Workshop”, Florence, 13-14 December 2017), and conceived as the opening event of an International Conference on the manuscript tradition of the Italian Ars Nova in the first decades of the fifteenth century (“The Nature of the End of the Ars Nova in Early Quattrocento Italy: Research Surrounding the San Lorenzo Palimpsest and Related Repertories”, Florence-Certaldo, 14-16 December 2017).
The workshop will consist of two sessions in which prepared musicology graduate students can work under supervision on selected topics surrounding the San Lorenzo corpus (Florence, Archivio del Capitolo di San Lorenzo, ms. 2211) and related sources. Topics will be the following:
The sessions will be held in English and will include transcription exercises from manuscript sources in Italian and French polyphonic notation. Therefore, knowledge of the basic principles of 14th-century mensural notation is a necessary prerequisite for admission. Particular focus will be on the topics mentioned above.
The Workshop is free. A maximum of 10 participants will be admitted. Six scholarships covering the accomodation fees for two nights (13-14 December) will be offered to participants non-resident in Florence. Admission will be established by a selection board set up by the director of the Fondazione Ezio Franceschini on the basis of the candidates’ c.v., to be annexed to the application. Attendance is required throughout the duration of the Workshop and the Conference.
Candidates should submit the APPLICATION FORM, accompanied by a curriculum vitae, to Fondazione Ezio Franceschini – Director, Prof. Lino Leonardi, by October 31, 2017.
Applications and attachments may be sent by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org; CC email@example.com). A certificate of attendance will be issued at the end of the Conference. Students may ask their institutions to acknowledge the Workshop in terms of academic credits.
