Learning outcomes

The course focuses on the study of the book as a product of conveying ideas from the second half of the fourteenth to the present day. The techniques for building it have continually evolved by crossing with political, economic and not least cultural interests. The book will be presented as an artifact, but also as a social object that over the years has undergone transformations in support, but also in content, shaping new ideas. At the end of the course the students will be aware of the historical-editorial dynamics that have influenced Europe's intellectual renewal. To complete the objectives, monographic lessons will be carried out on the development of the digital book and educational trips will be scheduled at museums, printing centers, or paper and printing labs.
