About This Event

Event Description:

Seminary curated by Maria Luisa Catoni, Professor in History of Ancient Art and Archeology at the IMT School.

The event is part of a series of appointments organized by the Neuroscience Lab of Intesa Sanpaolo Innovation Center with the aim of illustrating and disseminating the evolution of research in the field of Neuroscience.

The ability of the mimetic arts to condition and even to define human behavior, in individual, social and political terms, has been a confession that, in classical Greek antiquity, permeated not only the mechanisms and contests for the production and use of the arts, but also the explicit reflection, by the nascent political philosophy, of their power over individuals and societies.
