Learning Objectives

The students have to  strengthen their knowledge and competencies in arguments and methodological approaches of the Classical Archaeology. On the basis of the case study offered by the ancient painting, the students have to become able in analyzing and interpreting the ancient contexts and monuments with the consciousness of the articulated productive processes of them, of their uses and transmissions through  the different historical-cultural phases. They have also to acquire a critical capacity to judge the problematic role covered by the Greek and Latin authors in relationship to the archaeological evidences.

In such perspective , the course offers diachronically  a general view of the ancient painting (Greek, Etruscan, Italic, Roman etc.) and it examines the most significant contexts and monuments knew until now, which will be also discussed in relationship with the literary tradition.

Program

The course is annual. In the first semester (November-December) it’ll introduce to the arguments on the basis of Pliny the Elder (nat. Hist. 35) and it’ll examine the pictorial contexts and monuments from the 8th to 1rst century BC. In the second semester (February-April) the course’ll focused on the pictorial contexts and monuments from the 1rst century BC to the beginning of the 4th century AD and on the ekprastic literary tradition.

Detailed programme of the individual arguments (syllabus) will be disposable through  the Moodle platform at the beginning of the lessons.

Bridging Courses

It’s opportune, even if not obligatory, that the student has sustained a first level exam regarding the ‘Greek and Roman Archaeology and History of Art’.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

In order to access to additional training levels, the student will be able:

-  to acquire a personal knowledge and understanding of the themes and methodological approaces of the discipline;

-  to analyze and to contextualize the archaeological case-study critically and correctly;

- to rework personal knowledge, to make also autonomous judgments;

- to master the scientific terminology of the discipline.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

Educational journeys, planned with the students.

The students have to do an intermediate written exercise (text and/or schedule based on photos or drawings regarding an ancient monument) for auto-evaluating their own knowledge and competencies in analyzing and  interpreting a monument. Texts/schedules will be corrected in classroom all together with the professor.
