EXHIBITION

At Home in Renaissance Italy

Victoria & Albert Museum, London

5 October 2006 - 7 January 2007

“At Home in Renaissance Italy reveals for the first time the Renaissance 
interior’s central role in the flourishing of Italian art and culture. 
The exhibition provides an innovative three-dimensional view of the 
Italian Renaissance home, presented as object-filled spaces that bring 
the period to life. The exhibition showcases masterpieces by Donatello, 
Carpaccio, Botticelli, Titian and Veronese, and exquisite treasures from 
the Medici and other private collections, alongside unexpected everyday 
objects like a babywalker and a pair of velvet shoes.

“Many of the paintings, sculpture and decorative art objects we now 
associate with this period began their lives within the home. The 
exhibition places outstanding art and domestic objects within their 
original contexts. Together they highlight the rhythms and rituals of 
Renaissance living - from entertainment and cooking, to marriage and 
collecting.

“With rich displays of paintings, furnishings and cherished family 
possessions from the palazzi of Tuscany and the Veneto, At Home in 
Renaissance Italy presents an entirely fresh look at the Renaissance.”

CONFERENCE

At Home in Renaissance Italy

V&A Lecture Theatre, 17-18 November 2006

This international conference coincides with the major V&A exhibition At 
Home in Renaissance Italy. It marks the culmination of an intense 
programme of research carried out by an international, interdisciplinary 
team of scholars funded and supported by the V&A, the AHRC Centre for 
the Study of the Domestic Interior, the Getty Grant Program and the 
Samuel H. Kress Foundation.

The urban Italian house was a powerful site of aesthetic innovation and 
cultural change. This exhibition offers a new way of looking at 
Renaissance art through domestic life and artifacts in daily use. For 
the first time, the role of the household in the creation of Italian 
Renaissance art and culture is fully acknowledged, alongside that of 
city, court and church.

Taking place against the background of  the exhibition, this conference 
will be a forum for the presentation of innovative research by academics 
and museum curators from a variety of perspectives. Exploring the visual 
and cultural complexity of the domestic interior, it will present a 
fresh approach to the Italian Renaissance by concentrating on the urban 
house as a key  context for the development of art and culture.  The 
conference will be a forum for the presentation of new research and will 
explore issues such as setting up home,  the manufacture and consumption 
of domestic objects and  the different  meanings and uses of space.

The conference will be structured thematically and aims to include new 
research focused on these themes:
     * Designing the Home: production and consumption
     * Domestic Practices: exploring the everyday
     * The Urban House in Context: the human and material environment.
