As the first museum exhibition in the U.S. to focus on medieval art made in the Italian city of Bologna, Medieval Bologna: Art for a University City includes nearly 70 objects from the mid-1200s to 1400, from the first great flowering of manuscript illumination in Bologna to the beginnings of the construction and decoration of the Basilica of San Petronio in the city’s Piazza Maggiore. Home to the oldest university in Europe, Bologna fostered a unique artistic culture at the end of the Middle Ages. With a large population of sophisticated readers, the city became the preeminent center of manuscript production south of the Alps and it helped bring about a revolution in the medieval book trade. The exhibit opens at the Frist Art Museum on Friday, November 5, 2021, and runs through Sunday, January 30, 2022. fristartmuseum.org
