International Laboratory for the History of Science (ILabHS) is
a joint endeavour of the Dibner Institute (Cambridge, Mass.), the Istituto
e Museo di Storia della Scienza (Florence), the Max-Planck-Institut
für Wissenschaftsgeschichte (Berlin), the University of Athens
and the Tel Aviv University.
The fourth edition of the ILabHS has been organised by the Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza in Florence and Vinci from May 24 to June 1, 2001.
The fourth ILabHS was devoted to Art, science and techniques of drafting in the Renaissance. It was articulated in three sessions, which are listed below:
A group of distinguished scholars attending the Laboratory opened the discussion and presented hands-on experiments and papers on specific topics.
A group of international students have been selected among those who applied to take part in the Laboratory.
During each of the three sessions repetitions of historical experiments (with appropriate instrumentation) and participative exploration of crucial practical and technical operations accompanied formal presentations and discussions.
The 4th ILabHS was
realised thanks to a financial contribution on the part of the Ministero
per i Beni e le Attivitą Culturali.
