Workshop on Ancient Drama

The Workshop on Ancient Drama is directed by Prof. Anna Beltrametti. Its activity deals with:

a) the analysis of an acient play and its main hermeneutic problems

b) the discussion of philological, historical and dramatic aspects of the text

c) the analysis of modern translations and the dramatic aims that underlie the translators' choices

d) research on reception, re-writing, adaptation of ancient texts in modern literature, drama, cinema and culture

The annual program of the Workshop consists of lectures, meetings with scholars, translators, playwriters and directors.

Participants have the chance to develop personal projects, ranging from traditional research to the translation and re-writing of the ancient texts, with the cooperation and supervision of the Workshop staff.

Meetings and lectures can be attended by scholars, undergraduate and postgraduate students and high school teachers.
