Anatomia Italiana: The Cultural History of Art and Anatomy along the Italian Peninsula
Speaker: Kevin Petti, Professor, Departments of Science and Health, San Diego Miramar College
Italy's medieval universities established the study of human anatomy for medical professionals. To heighten their art, Renaissance masters clandestinely studied anatomy through human dissection. This talk will examine the profound nexus between art and science, and the history of anatomy education in the university.
Dr. Petti teaches anatomy and physiology, and human dissection at San Diego Miramar College. He has contributed to numerous college anatomy textbooks, and is a frequent guest lecturer at national conferences and universities.
