Andrea Canova (Editor), D Sogliani (Editor)

Risultato della ricerca: LibroOther report


The impact between the old world and the new world creates new knowledge, and new interactions. The discovery of America, a flourishing land considered the Eldorado, accentuates contacts with 'the other,' sometimes 'naïve' and 'primitive', but also 'unfaithful' and 'enemy'. Even the Gonzaga, who already have had contacts with Asia and Africa, want to update their knowledge of the new continent, and the taste for the exotic enters the collection of the Palazzo Ducale. The book deals with the multilayered effects of the so called Great Geographical Discoveries on the Western Civilization by focusing on documents stored in documents stored in the Gonzaga Database.
