Lezioni federiciane - Federician video lessons

On the occasion of the exhibition  Constancia. Women and power in the Mediterranean Empire of Frederick II held at the IIC-NY that can be visited virtually here, in we present a series of Federician video lessons organized in collaboration with the University of Salento, edited by Francesco Somaini.

"This New York exhibition - emphasizes Somaini - aims to return to reflect on an undoubtedly important age in the history of Europe, the West, the Mediterranean, which was the period of Swabian domination over Southern Italy. In short, we are talking about the age of Frederick II and Manfredi, but trying to examine it, albeit in a non-exclusive way, through the prism of the feminine, taking into consideration in particular four figures of indisputable importance, united by the name of Constance ".

The lessons:

* Francesco Somaini, The age of the four Constances. Four female figures at the center of Mediterranean politics in the parable of the Swabian age.

* Kristjan Toomaspoeg, The pluricultural kingdom of Federico and Costanza: minorities, identities and influences in the Kingdom of Sicily.

* Francesco Giannachi, The Holy Relatives: Frederick II and the Byzantine Empire.

* Fabrizio Lelli, Frederick II and the Jews (aka Jewish cultural mediation at the court of Frederick II).
