Learn about film preservation in next week's live Art Talk and ask your questions to George Eastman House's experts! #arttalks #heritage #preservation  
Join us March 10th for a live Art Talk with +George Eastman House about film preservation!

At a time when the future of film is confronted with the reality of digital as a dominant form of visual expression, there is an emerging need to celebrate the achievements of cinema as a photochemical medium. May 1-3, 2015, hundreds of cinephiles from around the world will converge on Rochester, NY at George Eastman House for The Nitrate Picture Show, the world’s first festival of film conservation to showcase vintage 35mm nitrate prints at the historic Dryden Theatre.

Join members of George Eastman House’s Moving Image Department Jared Case, Anthony L’Abbate, and Deborah Stoiber for a conversation about their work with film conservation and preservation and what makes a nitrate film screening a truly unique cinematic experience.

Join the conversation and ask questions to the speakers on this page, using the hashtag #arttalks  
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Google Art Project. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Imagine being a tourist in the nineteenth century.
Italy was the dream of many travelers in the past.
And the reality that they discovered when they visited Italy was often different from what they had imagined.

The great composer Antonio Vivaldi was born #OnThisDay‬  in 1678. He was one of the most productive composers of the Baroque era. Vivaldi's vast output included substantial quantities of chamber and vocal music, some 46 operas and a remarkable 500 concertos.

The composer had a colourful character with an eye for the ladies. Vivaldi defied however, a lifetime of ill-health by regularly absenting himself from his home base of Venice in a desperate attempt to establish an international reputation.

Explore the works of Antonio #Vivaldi‬  via Europeana:

Or listen to his stunning concerto in D mininore for 2 violins, cello and harpsichord strings Op. 3 No. 11 from "The inspiration harmonious" (P 250) - 03. Allegro.
