A bridge connecting France, more precisely the capital Paris, to the province of Treviso, more precisely Col Sandago. An initiative in the name of culture and research, in favour of the most deserving young PhD students. The Summer School, organised by the Centre Jean Pépin, the Laboratoire des humanités classiques of the Centre national de la Recherche Scientifique, and the École Normale Supérieure of Paris, is scheduled for the beginning of September, from Sunday 3 to Saturday 9, and will take place at Colle San Dagoberto, right in Susegana.
The choice of the prestigious Parisian reality, for the location of a summer doctoral school of excellence, focused on studies related to Quadrivium Humanism in the Renaissance, has fallen on the Hausbrandt Foundation, as a new internationally recognised reality in the promotion of culture, research and training. The lectures, which will be held at the Zanetti family’s Col Sandago Estate, the seat of the Foundation’s scientific activities, will be attended by professors from the most prestigious Italian and foreign universities (École Normale Supérieure in Paris, Università degli Studi di Bologna “Alma Mater Studiorum”,
Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, University of Naples Federico II, École nationale de chartes in Paris) and will be addressed to some of the best PhD students from the universities involved, selected on the basis of their curriculum and cursus studiorum.
Conceived and coordinated by Professor Pierre Caye, Director of the Centre Jean Pépin of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, in collaboration with President Martino Zanetti and Dr. Flavia Buzzetta, Scientific Director of the Hausbrandt Foundation, the school intends to propose a reflection on mathematical Humanism in the Renaissance and, in particular, on the intellectual and cultural phenomenon that in the 16th century created new knowledge and, above all, a moral wisdom profoundly regenerated on the basis of “number”. The Summer School will be divided into five days dedicated to different themes, such as the power of numbers, the relationship between science, mathematics and philology, the significance of the Copernican revolution, the architecture between art and mathematics and the cultural transference at the origin of a new science between the 14th and 16th centuries.
The Hausbrandt Foundation in synergy with the academic world intends to present new perspectives on a topic of great topicality for a society dominated by mathematical knowledge and tools, sometimes in a wild and uncontrolled way, searching for the intellectual and philosophical foundations that have led to the emergence of a new mathematical dimension of reality.
