Learning outcomes

The course aims at studying a specific argument of the Venetian history of architecture, concentrating on a context of a precise chronological period particularly important for introducing innovative models in the architectural culture.

Syllabus

Content of the course:
The Venetian Villa of the Renaissance. The course will study a specific relevant argument in the architectural culture in the Veneto: the spread, from XV to early XVII century, of villas in the inland, intended both as structure for otium and as farm-house for agricultural exploitation of the rural areas in the Veneto. Specific cases will be examined in the considered period including the best villas designed by Michele Sanmicheli, Jacopo Sansovino and most of all Andrea Palladio, up to the evolutions proposed by Vincenzo Scamozzi and Baldassare Longhena.

Didactic methods:
Lessons will take place three times a week and each lesson will last two hours. Powerpoint slides will illustrate the subject of each lesson. The same slides will be available for students on the e-learning platform on the University web page, but they cannot be reproduced since they are copyrighted.

Assessment methods and criteria

The examination consists of an oral test. The student shall demonstrate: he/she knows about the significant deeds in the artist’s life; he is able to make a critical analysis of the works illustrated at lessons. The works will be around 20.
