Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide a general history of Greek and Roman funerary wall paintings, from the Archaic period till the Imperial age.

Program

Painting is a primary archaeological and historical-artistic source for the knowledge of the ancient world. Through a diachronic and significant selection of  Greek and Roman funerary contexts, introduced through outlines of relevant historical studies on the topic, will be discussed technical and material questions of ancient  wall paintings, iconographies and meanings of the theme, chronological proposals, social and artistic values of the monuments by considering them in their own historical and cultural horizon.
