Learning Objectives

The course is divided into two parts, attendance of which is obligatory (except for proven work problems): an institutional part and a monographic part, of approximately similar length (about 40 hours for the institutional part, about 32 hours for the monographic part).  As far as the institutional part is concerned, it aims to provide a basic knowledge of the main problems faced by European artistic literature, especially Italian, between the 11th and 16th centuries, through the selection and commented reading of a series of passages by authors of particular historical and critical importance.  The monographic part, on the other hand, will focus on the Grand Tour of foreign artists in Rome, in particular British and 18th century artists, from Peter Scheemakers, to Allan Ramsay, Richard Wilson, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Joseph Wright of Derby, Henry Fuseli, etc.

Program

For the institutional part, reading in Italian, with commentary, of passages by authors such as: Raul Glaber, Theophilus, Bernard of Clairvaux, Sigeri St Denis, Villard de Honnecourt, Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Cennino Cennini. Raul Glaber, Theophilus, Bernard of Clairvaux, Sigeri of St Denis, Villard de Honnecourt, Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Cennino Cennini for the Middle Ages; Bartolomeo Fazio, Leon Battista Alberti, Lorenzo Ghiberti and Antonio Manetti for the 15th century; Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, Giorgio Vasari, Lomazzo and Zuccari, Agostino Carracci, for the 16th century. As for the monographic part: this year's course will focus on the Grand Tour, with particular attention to foreign artists (especially British, and especially 18th century) and their stays in Rome, Rome being for almost all of them the preferred place of residence. The fruit of their studies will be analysed through the reading of their texts (academic lectures, letters and the like) and their works of art, comparing them, where possible, with the study drawings made in Italy, emphasising the different role played for each of them by the examples of classical art (Greco-Roman statuary), Renaissance and Baroque art, and eighteenth-century art.

Bridging Courses

As the course is reserved for those who already have a three-year degree, it must be assumed that knowledge of medieval and modern art history, medieval and modern history and the history of Italian literature has already been fully acquired in the previous years of MA. A basic knowledge of the history of philosophy, with particular regard to aesthetics, would also generally be desirable (although this is not essential this year). And, of course, an adequate command of the Italian language and at least a passive knowledge of English and French, and hopefully also an elementary ability to read German, is expected.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The candidate must demonstrate through an interview to have learned and processed independently the topics covered during the lessons, applying them to the critical discussion of the various aspects considered: both the mechanisms of the interpretation of artistic works evidences as well as the joints for their critical study. In these areas the candidate will have to show that he is able to adequately recognize the differences peculiar to different centuries, the materials to which critical thought has been addressed, applying them to the artistic manifestations of European culture.

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

.  Depending on the time available and the availability of colleagues, there will be some additional seminars, also held by specialists from other universities, relating to the programme


Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

Lectures with projection of documents processed. At the end of the course the images will be available to students within the platform  Moodle ›blended.uniurb.it

Attendance

Attendance is compulsory and highly recommended.

Course books

First part:

J.von Schlosser, La letteratura artistica, La Nuova Italia 1977 

 F.Bologna, La coscienza storica dell'arte d'Italia, Torino UTET 1982 (ristampa Garzanti).

Further reading will be recommended as the lesson progresses.e.

Second part::

G. Perini Folesani, Sir Joshua Reynolds in Italia - Il soggiorno romano - I - Il taccuino di Plymouth, Firenze, Olschki, 2020.

Assessment

Oral examination. The candidate must demonstrate that he is moving with confidence and a critical spirit in commenting on the problems faced during the lessons; will have to know how to use the technical language of reference appropriately, applying it both to the presentation of the phenomena investigated and to the reference literature. In this specific area, he will have to demonstrate the ability to distinguish the different critical cut of the texts under study.

They will give rise to evaluations of excellence: the student's possession of good critical and in-depth skills; the ability to connect the main topics dealt; the use of an appropriate language with respect to the specific nature of the discipline.

They will give rise to discrete evaluations: the student's possession of a basic knowledge of the contents; a relative critical capacity and connection between the themes dealt; the use of an appropriate language.

They will give rise to sufficient evaluations: the achievement of minimal knowledge on the subjects dealt with by the student, even if there are some training gaps; the use of inappropriate language.

They will give rise to negative evaluations: difficulty of orientation of the student with respect to the topics dealt with in the exam texts; training gaps; the use of inappropriate language.

Only working students who can prove their status are exempt from attendance. In this case they must agree on a programme of supplementary readings with the teacher at least three or four months before the exam, as already indicated in the section relating to them.

b) The lessons of the monographic part will be given in Italian, as it is proper for anyone who teaches humanistic subjects in an Italian university: however they will inevitably include the reading of texts in English.
