Paper in Motion - COST Action PIMo
From Simancas to Fabriano with the aim of reconstructing “le vie della carta” (the paper routes) in Mare Nostrum, the crossroads of populations and ideas since the dawn of time. Following the first workshop held in Simancas in Spain last January, the workshop “Paper in Motion” of COST Action PIMo (People in Motion) will be in Fabriano, the paper manufacturing city par excellence.
Scholars from prestigious Italian and European universities will connect online on Friday 12 February 2021 from 9.30am to 5.30pm with the aim of reconstructing the history and spreading of the technologies implemented in the manufacturing of paper in South Europe through the Mediterranean. In particular, the material conditions since the onset of paper manufacturing will be analysed as well as the social, cultural, political and most far-reaching consequences associated with them, within the framework of a wider project which will closely study the circulation of the populations and ideas.
The workshop, which was formerly to be held in Fabriano Paper Pavilion, will be entirely held online and transmitted in direct streaming on Facebook page and YouTube channel of the Foundation.
