Syllabus

Course Content: the course provides an overview of the major artistic developments in the Italian region between the beginning of the fifteenth century (Renaissance) and the end of the eighteenth (Neoclassicism). Certainly, it is impossible a complete analysis of the many aspects included in this time frame, but some readings specimens will be proposed, with general openings connected to the taste and to the collecting and cultural contexts, also in perspective of a methodological reflection.

Assessment methods and criteria

A written test is divided into three parts. The first part consists of recognition of twenty images (a) from the manual and the text of Pinelli: each image is projected to the time of a minute and one has to indicate the author, the theme depicted, the date (or the period, if the date is not certain) the execution and even the location. The second part (b) consists of a question on a specific theme (i.e., work, artist,artistic school, phenomenon etc.) The time allowed is one hour. Eventually, it will follow a question (c) relating to the books of Pinelli and Sciolla to be answered in half an hour.
In order to havea positive mark (18 or above), one has to recognize at least ten out of twenty images, and the answers to the questions (b) and (c) has to be considered sufficiently accurate.
