Clair, Canfora, Rosenberg: master thinkers face off on the question of fakes

This volume collects the masterful and memorable interventions of the workshops “The mirror of reality. Fakes and history of art”, organised by the Federico Zeri Foundation in Bologna in 2013. The question of “fake” in history and art, archaeology, art criticism and philology had been tackled more than once by Federico Zeri who died in 1998; in his career as a scholar and connoisseur, he had brought to light sensational cases of forgery and scandals that left a lasting impression.
