The first part of the course (36 hours, beginning in the first half of the academic year) aims to educate at recognizing artistics' manners, underlining  differences and similarities, with their  exclusive and recurring characters, in order to let students became able at recognizing artists and their works.

The Language of art forms considered as the content opens to understand the context and history that make it possible: recognizing artistic manners means knowing the development of art history from its most direct expression: the language of forms.

In particular, the difficult education period between Urbino and Umbria and between Perugino, Pinturicchio and Signorelli will be in focus.

Program

Aside of that, the students will work in improving method of research, using sources and documents.

The course is divided into two parts, on topics relating to the subject and connected to special events in progress: the first part will be dedicated to Raffaello, whose fifth centenary of death is celebrated with an exhibition at the Palazzo Ducale in Urbino. The second part of the course will address the seventeenth century and in particular the Caravaggesque painting, taking advantage of the exhibition on Orazio Gentileschi and the Caravaggesque painting in the Marche in progress in Fabriano. These selections will make it possible to work in front of the works thanks to visits to the exhibitions, both in Urbino and in Fabriano.
