Learning Objectives

This course proposes that students approach Medieval Art in the fields of Architecture, Sculpture and Painting, also through the eyes of those who have rediscovered its value, through the phenomenon of art collecting and exhibitions, and those who have re-proposed its original forms  in modern and contemporary eras, through recoveries, re-evocations, and inventions .

Program

FIRST SEMESTER

In the first semester, the course will focus on Romanesque art, with particular attention to the Romanesque monuments in Rome (i.e S. Clemente in Rome, S. Maria in Cosmedin, S. Crisogono, S. Maria in Trastevere, the Abbazia delle Tre Fontane, S. Giovanni in Porta Latina, S. Giovanni in Laterano, S. Paolo outside the walls, S. Lorenzo outside the walls) and in the Lazio region (Immacolata in Ceri, Sant'Anastasio in Castel Sant'Elia, S. Pietro and S. Maria Maggiore in Tuscania, S. Maria di Castello in Tarquinia, the cathedral of Civita Castellana, S. Silvestro in Tivoli, the Sacro Speco and S. Scolastica in Subiaco, the cathedral of Anagni, the cathedral of Terracina).

SEMINAR 

In the first semester, students will be offered the opportunity to take a one credit Seminar to integrate theoretical knowledge with methodological skills and professionalizing practices. In the Seminar, entitled "The art of talking about art: how to tell the story of monuments and works to a general public", students will be asked to work independently and individually on a topic assigned by the teacher, following the guidelines given them by the Professor in a series of lessons (12 hours), and to present it in front of a virtual general public, also with the aid of multimedia supports. Mandatory attendance.

SECOND SEMESTER

In the second semester, the course will focus on the representation of the Labors of the Months, an ancient iconography that became very common in Europe in the Middle Ages and beyond, particularly significant in the Romanesque period. The most interesting exemples of the theme in sculpture, painting, miniature, from the 9th to the 14th century, will be analyzed and contextualized.

Course Schedule: TBA

Lessons will be held at the following times: TBA

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

-have demonstrated knowledge and capacity for comprehension of texts and of certain specific themes typically associated with the first cycle and allow the application of original ideas, often in the context of study and research (knowledge and understanding);
-can be able to apply their knowledge and understanding and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments, found in broader (or interdisciplinary) contexts connected to their field of study and research (applying knowledge and understanding);
-have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, as well as formulate independent judgment based on limited or incomplete information (making judgments)
-can communicate in a clear, unambiguous manner their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underlying those conclusions, to others whether their interlocutors are specialists in the field or not. (communication skills);
-have to develop their ability to learn in a way that will allow them to continue their studies autonomously (learning skills)

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

Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

In-class lessons

Attendance

In order to be considered as attending students, students must attend at least two-thirds of the lessons. Leaving early is counted as an absence. 

Course books

Beyond knowledge of the topics covered during the course, for which slides will be downloaded on the Moodle platform for easy consultation, the study of the following texts (uploaded on the Moodle platform, as well)  is requried: 

- A.M. Romanini, L'arte medievale in Italia, Firenze, Sansoni, 1988, pp. 269-357.

- C. Tosco, Romanico, in Enciclopedia dell'arte medievale, Roma, Treccani,1999, ad vocem (available also on the internet).

- G.M. Fachechi, Tutto a suo tempo: la didattica ‘inclusiva’ dei cicli monumentali dei Mesi in Italia, in “Arte Medievale” 9 (2019), pp. 133-160.

Assessment

The assessment takes place through:

- a midterm oral test, held at the end of the first semester, based on the topics covered in the first part of the course;

- a final oral exam, based on the topics covered in the second semester, if the student passed the midterm exam, on all the topics of the course, otherwise.

The evaluation will be based on the following criteria:

a) punctuality, attendance, participation = 30% (less than 48 hours = 5; between 48 and 60 = 6-8; between 60 and 72 = 9-10)

b) midterm test = 30% (5: insufficient; 6-8: good; 9-10: excellent)

c) final test = 40% (5: insufficient; 6-8: good; 9-10: excellent)

The sum of the scores obtained based on the 3 criteria (a-b-c) gives the grade out of thirty. Since the final test weighs more, it will be this to determine any excess rounding and / or honors.

Reported Grades will be determined by the following scale:

30: 100% to 90%

Work of this quality directly addresses the question or problem raised and provides a coherent argument displaying an extensive knowledge of relevant information or content. This type of work demonstrates the ability to critically evaluate concepts and theory and has an element of novelty and originality. There is clear evidence of a significant amount of reading/research beyond that required for the course

27-29: 89% to 80%

This is highly competent level of performance and directly addresses the question or problem raised. There is a demonstration of some ability to critically evaluate theory and concepts and relate them to practice. Discussions reflect the student’s own arguments and are not simply a repetition of standard lecture and reference material. The work does not suffer from any major errors or omissions.


23-26: 79% to 70%

This is an acceptable level of performance and provides answers that are clear but limited, reflecting the information offered in the lectures and reference readings.


18-22: 69% to 60%

This level of performances demonstrates that the student lacks a coherent grasp of the material. Important information is omitted and irrelevant points included. In effect, the student has barely done enough to persuade the instructor that s/he should not fail.
