I semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Sep 28, 2020 al Jan 9, 2021.

Learning outcomes

Main class’ purpouse is to introduce students to the most common analysis methodologies of italian and european work of art. To be more specific: stilistic, historical, technical and iconography aspects. In this way students are going to learn an accurate way of speaking that will allows them to analyse works of art of any spatial and historic context, individually and in fully autonomy. A particular attention is dedicated to how the work of art was realized, in relationship with the context in which it was produced, and how it is now show to the public. This way of proceeding is essential to guarantee a better comprehension of subjects in which students are graduating.

Examination Methods

In relation to the situation deriving from the Coronavirus emergency, the examination modality shown below is modified for the 2020 summer session, in accordance with the indications of the university, in oral exam with telematic mode [ZOOM].

Final Exam: Written test
The test consists in
- a questionnaire composed of 5 questions on topics relating to the period from the early Renaissance to the 15th century
- a second questionnaire, also made up of 5 questions on topics relating to the period from the 16th century to Neoclassicism
In the same exam (4 hours long), students may choose to be tested on only the first questionnaire or on both questionnaires . If they choose to split the test into two sections, they must follow a set order: a first exam focused on the questionnaire covering the first period (from the early Renaissance to the 15th century) and, only if they pass that exam, a subsequent one focused on the questionnaire covering the timespan from the early 16th century to Neoclassicism.
The exam questions may concern an author’s profile (ex. Donatello and his periods - for instance Donatello in Padua - Bernini, Canova) or the context in which he worked, or more general concepts (ex. Maniera Moderna, Mannerism, Baroque, Neoclassicism, with examples). Some questions might also focus on the profiles of artists of “lesser” standing (ex. Botticelli and Laurentian age, Verrocchio and Pollaiolo in comparison), or single works of art (ex. Ghent Altarpiece, Cappella Brancacci, Caravaggio in San Luigi dei Francesi, Cappella Cornaro). The questions consist of multiple components in order to suggest a possible “progression” among arguments or facilitate thematic links, thereby pushing students to go beyond flat, superficial summaries of the material.
