La Dott.ssa Carrabino relaziona sulla canonica di San Biagio a Montepulciano, opera del grande architetto rinascimentale, Antonio di Sangallo il Vecchio (c. 1534). Presenterà un riassunto della storia dell’edificio di Montepulciano come esempio di architecttura del rinascimento italiano e proporrà alcune idee basate sulle sue ricerche per spiegare perchè Henry Richardson Shepley ha scelto proprio questo edificio per il disegno del "nuovo" museo Fogg a Harvard nel 1927. Danielle Carrabino e' curatore dell'arte europea presso gli Harvard Art Museums.
