Franz Rosenzweig (1886-1929) is considered one of the most important German-Jewish thinkers, above all because of his complex main opus "The Star of Redemption" (1921), fascinating in cultural, philosophical and theological aspects. German and Italian scholars and young researchers will focus on a previously neglected area of Rosenzweig's interest: his theory of the Baroque, in which Rosenzweig – although still very young – proves to be a unique and remarkably creative thinker. The interdisciplinary "close reading" of his text on Baroque by philosophers, theologians, art historians as well as literary scholars and musicologists tries to elucidate the different nuances of Rosenzweig's theory.
