Ghibertiana is an interdisciplinary project — developed by the DM_SHS Research Unit of DIDA (Department of Architecture of the University of Florence) and by the Municipality of Pelago — which focuses on the figure of Lorenzo Ghiberti, that includes a Centre for the Interpretation of the Territory of the Val di Sieve, named in his honour, as well as a Documentation Centre devoted to him, both to be housed in the restored halls of the Palazzo Comunale in Pelago's castle, in the vicinity of the place where the artist was born and grew up.
The Interpretation Centre will propose an innovative itinerary through the territory of the lower Valdisieve, which will focus on those aspects that are directly related to the life and work of Ghiberti himself.
As for the Documentation Centre, it will collect in dematerialized format all the documents concerning the artist, and will thus become the main corpusof the new International Centre for Ghibertian Studies.
