Abstract

Semitic Philology has been taught at Ca’ Foscari for almost fifty years in the unique setting of Ca’ Cappello, former Venetian residence of the archaeologist Austen Henry Layard. There, in a most inspiring environment for Semitists, from 1969 to present, seven specialists have taught Semitic languages and culture to generations of students. The broad scope of the subject represents the appeal of Semitic Philology to Ca’ Foscari students: to those interested in the History and languages of the Ancient Near East and to students who concentrate on modern Semitic languages and contemporary issues.
