The study of history of Contemporary art investigates the historical-artistic path that goes from the Eighteenth to the end of the Twentieth century, in the awareness that history of art is found by two inseparable elements: art and history. In this vision, the investigation is carried out on two different and connecting tracks: the alternation of artists, movements and situations and the relationships that connect the historical-artistic path to the rest of the culture. Through these two aspects, the investigation provides a comprehensive view of a determined period of time.
