Dance historian Barbara Sparti passed away

Barbara Sparti
(* 7. February 1932, New York; † 17. June 2013, Rome)

Barbara Sparti was an authority on early dance.

She was the scholar singled out by Bengt Häger of the Carina Ari Foundations to prepare the facsimile edition of the unique treatise he had acquired for the Carina Ari Library: Ercole Santucci's "Mastro da Ballo" from 1614.

As expected, Barbara Sparti did an admirable job.
We will honor her memory.
