Veronese: "Virgin and Child with Saints", San Sebastian Church

Diana Gisolfi was invited by the Soprintendenza of Venice to contribute to the catalogue of an exhibition opening April 8, 2011 in Venice of the three major ceiling paintings by Veronese (recently conserved) from the church of San Sebastiano. She has been a frequent visitor to the conservation laboratory at the Misericordia Abbey and also to the scaffold in San Sebastiano where the ceiling framework is under conservation.

In further news, Gisolfi will be chairing a session called “Monks, Friars and Learning” at the annual conference of the Renaissance Society of America, in Montreal in March. She is also currently serving on the dissertation committee for a Rutgers Ph.D. candidate writing on patronage by an early Caotholic Reform group at the church of San Giorgio in Braida in Verona.
