Gotica Rotunda

With Luca Barcellona  

Starting date : 14 June 2024

Fees : HK$ 1,000 or US$ 130

Workshop Description

The forms of so-called Gothic script have seen substantial changes throughout the history of writing, depending on the period, place, and artistic influences. Just think of the rigid and repetitive forms of textura and the Renaissance and decorative forms of fraktur. One of these forms developed in Italy from the 12th to the 13th century CE, where much wider, rounded letters appear in manuscripts, with a firm base of vertical rods, accompanied by capitals of various types, including illuminated and decorated Lombard letters to serve as capitals.In this course we will try to rewrite the original forms, starting from manuscripts, and reproduce the texture given by the dense columns of text. This is a way of reacquainting ourselves with a perhaps little known and undervalued aspect of our culture. The course is suitable for everyone, beginners and experts.
