Jacopo Veneziani, a well-known popularizer of art topics, will be taking part in Tocatì to bring us on a tour of masterpieces linked to the theme of games. The young professor and PhD student in Art History at the Sorbonne in Paris has been on Twitter since 2015 to talk about Italian works of art and cultural heritage outside the traditional tourist circuits with the hashtag #Divulgo, which resulted in the book “#Divulgo. Le storie della storia dell’arte” (Rizzoli, 2020), and recently “Simmetrie-osservare l’arte di ieri con lo sguardo di oggi” (Rizzoli, 2021). From 2020 he will be working with the television channel Raitre.
Introduced by Lorenza Pizzinelli, journalist. Lorenzo Migliorati, professor of Sociology of cultural and communicative processes at the University of Verona, takes part in the meeting.
BIOGRAPHY JACOPO VENEZIANI
A PhD student in modern art history at the Sorbonne in Paris, Jacopo Veneziani defines himself as an “wannabe popularizer”. In 2015, he decided to join Twitter – where he is now followed by more than thirty thousand people – to talk about works of art, little known to most people, and Italian cultural goods outside the traditional tourist circuits. To do this, he created the hashtag #Divulgo, which five years later turned into the book “#Divulgo. Le storie della storia dell’arte” (Rizzoli, 2020), conceived as a journey through seven centuries of painting history, from the 13th to the 19th century, to discover details that are often difficult to notice at first sight. After a brief experience on YouTube, in October 2020 he crossed the threshold of television with a weekly column dedicated to art history in the programme “Le parole della settimana”, hosted by the journalist Massimo Gramellini on Saturday evenings on the TV channel Rai Tre.
In 2021 he published the book “Simmetrie- osservare l’arte di ieri con lo sguardo di oggi” (Rizzoli)
