FORTY YEARS WIL VILLA I TATTI
On Sunday, July 22 at 5:30 pm the Foxhowe Association And The Buck Hill Art Association Presents: Forty Years With Villa I Tatti
Since 1961, Villa I Tatti, the Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, has nurtured scholarship that advances global humanistic learning. Buck Hill’s Susan Mainwaring Roberts credits the start of her long relationship with Villa I Tatti back to her senior year in high school, when her mother gifted her a book about art historian Bernard Berenson. Berenson bequeathed the Villa, with its library and art collection, to Harvard as a center for collaboration and study advancing understanding of the Italian Renaissance. To date, I Tatti has welcomed over one thousand appointees working in the fields of Italian Renaissance art, history, literature, philosophy, history of science and music. Susan’s degrees in Fine Arts and the Historyof Art (University of Pennsylvania) led to her 40-year association with The Harvard Center. She is presently Chair of the Villa I Tatti Council, an international advisory group.
