SUMMER SCHOOL IN GREEK METRICS AND RHYTHMICS
In the week 3-7 September 2012 will take place in Urbino a Summer School in Greek Metrics and
Rhythmic organized by the C.I.S.G.A. (Centro Internazionale di Studi sulla Cultura Greca), the
Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia dell’Università di Urbino “Carlo Bo”, The Dipartimento di Scienze del
Testo e del Patrimonio Culturale, in cooperation with the Ente Regionale per il diritto allo Studio
Universitario di Urbino (E.R.S.U) and the Ministero per I Beni e le Attività Culturali (Soprintendenza
per i Beni Storici, Artistici ed Etnoantropologici delle Marche).
The courses are intended to provide a scholarly introduction to the study of metrics and rhythmics,
musical culture in the ancient world, the principal issues connecting metrics to editing and textual
criticism as well as the knowledge and skills necessary for confronting independently and critically
the metrical and rhythmical interpretation of any text of ancient Greek poetry.
The course will consist of a number of traditional lessons, evening lectures, workshops with written
test, and a final panel discussion, amounting to 36 hoursdistributed into 5 days. Italian and English
will be the official languages spoken during the course.
The lessons will deal with the following themes:
- general principles and history of the discipline
- basic concepts of prosody
- meters of recited poetry and recitative
- lyric meters
- structures of versification
- transmission and critical tradition of poetic texts
- basic concepts of ancient music
Workshops will apply and investigate in depth themes dealt with in the lessons. The evening
lectures, particularly concerned with archaeology (musical iconography) and history of ancient
music, are intended to implement the topics dealt with in the lessons.
The final panel discussion will confront specific themes chosen and proposed to the participants
by the scholarly experts.
