Learning objectives

The aim of the course is to improve the ability of independent analysis and develop a mature mastery of the critical tools of the discipline in relation to specific aspects of the history of modern art.

Prerequisites and basic notions

Prerequisites: background knowledge, also of manuals, of 18th-century Venetian art is required for the specific context.
Reference manuals. G. Dorfles, C. Dalla Costa, G. Pieranti, Civiltà d’arte. Dal Quattrocento all’Impressionismo, 2, Bergamo, Edizioni Atlas, in the different editions.
L. Beltrame, C. Fumarco, Il nuovo vivere l’arte, 2. L’età moderna, Edizioni scolastiche Bruno Mondadori.
N. Frapiccini, N. Giustozzi, Le storie dell’arte, Hoepli, in the different editions.


The European fortune of 18th-century Venetian painters: leaving out the vedutists and giving a focus on Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini, Marco and Sebastiano Ricci, Rosalba Carriera, Jacopo Amigoni, Federico Bencovich, and Giambattista Tiepolo.
Reflections on the international taste for Venetian art at courts, patrons in the civil and religious spheres, and collectors, including reference to theorists, critics, and mediators, particularly the case of Anton Maria Zanetti il Vecchio.Program: Rocaille painting in the interpretation offered by the major Venetian masters assumes a centrality at the European level. Nevertheless, it involves genres and personalities with a variety of languages.
The essential data of the biographical and stylistic profile of the leading Venetian painters, which are assumed to be known through the manuals, serve as the basis for the reconstruction of more complex issues that are to be acquired at least in broad strokes, as an indication of method. The cultural and artistic cosmopolitanism of 18th-century Venice finds support from critics and mediating figures.
The course will investigate the mechanisms of international collecting, the circularity of artists' experiences due to the involvement of musicians, singers, playwrights, theater actors and set designers.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
