Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide students with art history basic knowledge. Particularly, the art elements of Italian painting tradition, then the European one and finally, in a larger way of speaking, “the Occident’s art history” will be provided. During the course, figurative arts’ main personalities and texts will be analysed, describing the relationships between them and the geographical contexts. The goal is to acquire an analytic methodology to link the great moments of art history with local or regional artistic expressions. Thanks to this, the so-called “cultural tourism” operator can then develop projects on user’s historic and artistic interests, in full autonomy. Part of classes treats rules and notions concerning the national trust or art dedicated institutions, such as museums or private collections. The study of such institutions aims to convey well historic-based notions and the ability to evaluate their managerial and promotional methods.
