Accademia della Crusca. Guida
“Perché la sua bontà si disasconda”
Exhibition itinerary in the headquarters of the Accademia della Crusca
The Accademia della Crusca is the most important institution in Italy and in the world for the protection, study and dissemination of the Italian language.
This guide will accompany you to discover its secular history, the work of those who have been part of it and the fundamental work that has emerged: the first Vocabulary of the Italian language.
The best way to get to know the Academy is to visit it: visiting the rooms of its headquarters, the prestigious Medici Villa of Castello, means coming into contact with a documentary, bibliographical, archival and unique material heritage, which testifies to the great work that the Academicians, over the centuries, have carried out for the Vocabulary.
This guide is a valuable help for the visitors, but also a useful tool for those who approach the linguistic and historical aspects treated by the Academy.
The rich photographic apparatus, accompanied by numerous explanatory plates, leads with simplicity the reader in this wonderful journey.
