Learning Objectives

The course aims to illustrate the survival and revival of classical antiquity in European culture, presenting the lines of development for the birth of archaeological science. In that historiographical context, the language of Roman art will be followed by the interpretations it received during the twentieth century (see program).

Program

The course intends to present the history of birth of Roman artistic language  and the crystallization of models according the different occasions, both public and private. Particular attention will be given to the Pacis Arena, starting from the history and fortune of the monument in the modern age;  its new figurative language will considerd in order to transmit not only aesthetic, but also political, ideological, and moral messages.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The candidate must demonstrate through an oral interview that he learned and developed independently the topics covered during the course, applying them to the critical discussion. The candidate must be able to recognize both the mechanisms of formation of Roman artistic language and its meanings, distinguishing them according to the historical time; the type and context of use of the monument;  the function, public or private, of the same. The candidate will therefore have to develop a discrete critical capacity to evaluate the proposed interpretation using the proper language of the disciplinary field.
