Matteo Ricci, a Jesuit at the Ming Court - lectures

admission free

Michela Fontana

A distant and virtually unknown world in which slant-eyed men spoke incomprehensible gibberish, painters was ignorant of perspective and religion didn't countenance a God who governed the universe. That's what China looked like to the late 16th century Jesuit who travelled alone to the far reaches of the Ming Empire. Michela Fontana will be bringing to life this cultivated, broad-minded traveller who, setting aside all fear of what appeared "alien", introduced Western culture and scientific knowledge to the East.
