16 MARCH 2017 / International Conference “Ugo Foscolo: Between Italy and Greece” supported by SNF

From March 9th to March 11th, SNF Grantee University of Nice Sophia Antipolis hosted the International Conference “Ugo Foscolo: Between Italy and Greece” in Nice, France, and Ventimiglia, Italy, supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

The event brought together sixty specialists, researchers and students from several countries, to foster exchange on the work and influence of Foscolo, and Greek intellectual and poets. It presented an opportunity for scholars to build bridges, creating a starting point for further collaborations. Endorsed by Italian and Greek authorities, the event also benefited from the cooperation of dedicated associations, including in Zákinthos, the birthplace of Ugo Foscolo. A dedicated short artistic film was created on the occasion and will be disseminated widely.
