The meeting with the two authors Maddalena Basso, historian of architecture, and Camilla Bertoni, art historian, will be moderated by Paola Marini, art historian and former director of the Civic Museums of Verona and the Galleries of the Academy of Venice . The presentation will be introduced by Fabrizio Magani, Archeology superintendent, fine arts and landscape for the provinces of Verona, Rovigo and Vicenza, and Roberto Niccolai, president of the board of directors of AGEC.
