PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Florenсе in the Works of European Writers and Artists: Project of Encyclopedic Dictionary for Guides and Tourists The project involves detailed analysis of existing national and international encyclopedias on art, literature and music of Renaissance époque in Bulgarian, Croatian, Hungarian, Russian and English lexicographic traditions. Special attention is paid to rich experience of Shakespeare lexicography (beginning its history since XIX c.) which has at its disposal many types of encyclopedic dictionaries: onomasticons, dictionaries of characters and place names, companions to literary works, authors’ encyclopedias, etc. These reference sources usually show extra linguistic and cultural background of Shakespeare time: writer’s contemporaries (artists, actors, architects, poets, stage producers, etc.), streets, churches, theaters, palaces, museums, remarkable buildings and the like. The main focus is made on Italian influence on their national cultures and particular to Florence known as world treasure of Italian art and outstanding architecture which gave inspiration to authors and painters in Russia, Hungary, etc. The project of a new Internet lexipedia will be proposed based both on the analysis of cultural encyclopedias of partners countries and personal experience gained by students during their stay in Florence and visiting Florentine museums, art galleries and monuments (Uffizi Gallery). Each group of international students will submit the model of a dictionary entry devoted to its national writer or artist whose creative career has been connected with Florence. The entry will include: 1) a photo of the person described; 2) his/her biographical data; 3) description of connections with Florence and 4) the part dedicated to Florentine motives in the writers’ and artists’ creations. The new element of the microstructure will be introduced, i.e. links to certain places of interest in Florence which will show present state of the monument or sight in the students’ perception. The project will contribute to developing further interest of Italian and foreign tourists to Florentine through new research of national artists’ and writers’ works dealing with Florentine topic. It would be also useful for guides working in Florence as a source of new and original material about this outstanding city.
