Learning outcomes

The course will analyze the book as a product of conveying ideas from the second half of the 15th century up to the present days. Techniques for building books have continually evolved, crossing with political, economic, and ultimately cultural interests. The book will be presented as an artefact, but also as a social object that over the span of decades has undergone into format and content transformations, shaping new ideas and influencing the intellectual renewal of Europe for which the publishing world still plays an essential role.
