Professor Giulio Cattin, who was nominated by the Board of Directors in 1988 as head of scientific work in the Foundation, presented a unitary, modular programme entitled “Music in ancient Mediterranean civilizations”.
The project consisted in a series of two seminars a year; at the same time, the proposal was put forward to create an international scientific Committee, presided by Cattin, to give the seminar activities a broader European depth, as the scientific promoter and sponsor of the Foundation’s cultural initiatives. From the very start, the key characteristics of the working method of the scientific committee were collaboration and flexibility, resulting in a work methodology that was highly interdisciplinary that became a stable fixture of the seminars organized by the Foundation over the years.
Professor Antonio Lovato has been President of the Scientific Committee since 2006. This section includes news regarding the Seminars, Study days, and Meetings that have been organized by the Levi Foundation over the last ten years. Brochures and abstracts of the papers are available for each event.
