    Dr. Michael Chiariello
    Professor Emeritus and Director, Study Abroad in Perugia
    Dr. Michael Chiariello, Professor Emeritus, organized and chaired a series of panels to discuss the findings of a newly published volume, Gli Affreschi delle Palazze. Una storia fra Umbria and America (The Palazze Frescoes. A Tale between Umbria and America). The book, edited by professors Tommaso Di Carpegna Falconieri and Grazia Maria Fachechi, University of Urbino, Italy, offers the first full study and digital reconstruction of one of the most important fresco cycles in Italy, before Giotto. These frescoes were originally painted, at the end of the 13th century, in the ancient convent of Poor Clares of Santa Maria Inter Angelos, known as Le Palazze, near Spoleto, in Umbria. In the 1920s, the frescoes were removed, divided, and purchased by five American museums: the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford, the Worcester Art Museum, the Fogg Museum at Harvard, and the Glencairn Museum in Bryn Athyn, Pa. The bilingual book is richly illustrated with essays by scholars from both the U.S. and Italy. It contains a DVD that offers the reader a virtual tour of the cycle in its original site on the walls of the convent, thus virtually reuniting what has been dispersed and at the same time advancing a fuller understanding of the cycle’s artistic context. The October presentations were held at The College of the Holy Cross, the Worcester Art Museum, Temple University, and the Glencairn Museum. The lead researchers, Di Carpegna and Fachechi, were joined by Dr. Jonathan Kline of Temple University in sessions chaired by Chiariello, who is a board member of the Romeyne Robert and Uguccione Sorbello Foundation, which supported the project.
