Learning outcomes

Following the case of Andrea Schiavone, the course aims to improve the knowledge of Modern Art History, highlighting the different approaches to the reading of the art works: from archival research to contextual frameworks, from the use of images as historical sources to interactions with literature and other forms of art, from the connoisseurship to fakes and forgeries, from the art market to the phenomenon of the exhibitions.


Course Content: During the course, many images of art works will be presented and analyzed according to different perspectives of approach, aiming at activating mechanisms of personal reading.
Teaching methods: Slides during lectures and possibly museum visits. Learning material posted on e-learning.
