15th Century Italian Dance
15th Century Italian Dance centres around the work of the works of Domenico da Piacenza and his students Antonio Cornazano and Guglielmo Ebreo. These dance masters were active in the second half of the 15th century, a time of relative peace in Italy.
Philosophy of Dance
The 15th century Italian dance texts put emphasis on what they considered to be the six elements of perfect dancing: memoria (memory), misura, maniera, aire, diversità di cose and compartimento di terreno.
