Learning outcomes

Conoscere i principali temi della riflessione estetica nella sua connessione alla pedagogia, comprendendo come l’esperienza estetica e il valore di verità attinto dalle opere d’arte possano essere declinati con profitto nei contesti educativi. Comprendere le implicazioni filosofiche presenti nella percezione e nella creazione di opere d’arte, per la cui piena comprensione è necessaria una riflessione di tipo filosofico. Comprendere la dimensione filosofica inscritta nell’esperienza della bellezza e sviluppo delle capacità educative dell’arte. Saper vedere la possibilità di applicare le conoscenze estetiche ed estetico-filosofiche nel contesto pratico e professionale dell’educazione. Saper giustificare il rapporto tra esperienza educativa e riflessione estetica, e apprezzare il valore educativo e culturale che è espresso dalla comprensione e produzione dell’arte. Comprendere la forza d’indagine che la pratica dell’arte implica, nel rafforzamento della implicazioni filosofiche del nostro rapporto con il sé, con gli altri e con il mondo.


Estetica, arte, musica e contesti educativi
Coordinatore: Pier Alberto Porceddu Cilione

The course aims to expand students' experiential skills through the arts and through the philosophical reflection on art and creativity. Western civilization has been characterized, from the age of Greek paideia, by the attribution to art of a fundamental and indispensable educational dimension. At the end of the educational process students will have learned some fundamental questions concerning the meaning of education through art, in order to elaborate critical abilities applicable in work contexts. At the end of the course students should be able to elaborate cognitive tools that allow them to face the complexity of the pedagogical work with a critical eye and experiential sensitivity.



THE QUESTION OF BEAUTY. Educational Perspectives

The course program will be articulated around the theme of beauty and the philosophical reflection on it. The main question of the course will be the following: how has thought dealt with the concept of beauty, with its experiential, practical, aesthetic and philosophical declinations? The theme of the relationship between education and beauty will be analyzed through its effects, its logics, its meanings.
1) A first section of the course will include a succinct introduction to the fundamental questions of philosophy pertinent to the pedagogical context.
2) A second section will propose a brief historical-analytical journey through the questions of Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art, to allow students to become familiar with some fundamental concepts of the discipline.
3) A third section will specifically analyze the theme of beauty in its philosophical dimension, underlining its essential relationship with education. In this section the contents of the course texts will be presented.
4) Space will be given to direct confrontation, to dialogue and to collective discussion on the proposed themes, encouraging students to participate actively.


The exam’s preparation consists of a compulsory text and one text chosen from the list below.

1) Compulsory text:

 M. OPHÄLDERS, Filosofia Arte Estetica, Mimesis, Milano 2008

2) One text freely chosen from the list below:

 R. BODEI, Le forme del bello, Il Mulino, Bologna 2017 (1995)
 B.-C. HAN, La salvezza del bello, Nottetempo, Milano 2019
 R. SCRUTON, La bellezza, Vita e Pensiero, Milano, Milano 2011
 F. CHENG, Cinque meditazioni sulla bellezza, Bollati Boringhieri, Torino 2007
 H. GARDNER, Verità, bellezza, bontà, Feltrinelli, Milano 2011
 A. DANTO, L’abuso della bellezza, Postmedia Books, Milano 2008

Although frontal lessons will play an important role, they will be enriched with direct learning experiences through familiarization with the most diverse artistic practices. The analytical reading of philosophical texts on the proposed theme will be placed next to different forms of learning. Special attention will be given to listening to and analyzing music, exploring some eminent examples of the connection between the practice of music, music playing and pedagogical methods. It will be multi-sensory experiences aimed at expanding students’ perceptual abilities, encouraging them to develop transferable skills in their future work experience.

Stage e Tirocini

Le ulteriori attività formative (crediti F) sono interamente coperte dall’attività di tirocinio “indiretto” (1 cfu) da svolgersi nel secondo anno e di tirocinio “diretto” (14 cfu) da svolgersi presso enti convenzionati per un numero complessivo di 15 cfu (375 ore). Chi è iscritta/o al curriculum servizi per l’infanzia è tenuta/o a svolgere il tirocinio presso nidi e servizi per la prima infanzia per almeno il 50% delle ore.
Il tirocinio professionalizzante (375 ore, pari a 15 cfu), è obbligatorio sia nella sua forma diretta che indiretta.
Il tirocinio indiretto, della durata di 25 ore a frequenza obbligatoria al 75%, si svolge in Università per 20 ore e in forma di lavoro individuale per 5 ore e consiste in un accompagnamento iniziale delle/degli studenti da parte dei tutor attraverso un percorso formativo dotandoli di conoscenze e strumenti adeguati a osservare, comprendere e rielaborare criticamente l’esperienza di tirocinio nei servizi educativi e ad affrontare il tirocinio negli enti con metodo e consapevolezza. Il percorso, da attuare in gruppi da 20-25 persone sotto la supervisione di un tutor, risponde alle esigenze costantemente espresse sia dalle/dagli studenti stessi sia dalle parti sociali che dai referenti degli enti convenzionati.
Il tirocinio diretto si propone di raggiungere i seguenti obiettivi:
  • fare esperienza diretta di attività professionali, che richiedono un livello di preparazione al lavoro educativo;
  • approfondire in particolare il rapporto tra preparazione teorica, acquisita mediante lo studio, ed esperienza pratica, tra mondo del sapere e della cultura e mondo del lavoro e delle professioni;
