Valle Camonica Historical and Anthropological Society (SSAValCam) organizes the 10th edition of the international I.S.T.A. conference (I.S.T.A. : Meetings for the Study of the Alpine Territories).
The topic is: «Medieval art in the Alps. Painting, sculpture and architecture between the 14th and 15th centuries».
The meeting will be held in Breno (BS-Italy) in October 2020* (* In compliance with health regulations).
It is possible to send a proposal through the attached abstract form.
