Learning outcomes

The course aims at analysing the development of the Italian artistic heritage between the Fifteenth and the Nineteenth century. The course examines works of art connected to the cultural context which relates to history and also to the personal relationships and believes of the author, as well as to the real meaning that the work had to express. Particular attention will be given to architecture which is the form of art mostly connected to our daily life in the city.


Contents of the course: From the Early Fifteenth century (Brunelleschi) to the Early Nineteenth century (Canova). The lessons will proceed through important artistic moments and phenomena, from a formal and methodological point of view.
