Learning Objectives

Through selected images concerning myth and epos in the Roman figurative culture, the student will be conducted to acquire critical competences in the identification, classification, and understanding of an ancient iconographical source.

Program

Images will be discussed in relationship to the different aspects which define shape and meaning of them:  composition and disposition (gesture, figure, scene, narrative sequence); combination with verbal elements (inscriptions); continuity/innovation compared to Greek iconographic repertory; relationship with the literary tradition; differences related to genre and category of artifacts and monuments; tools, practices and processes of the ancient production and transmission of the images (level diachronic and synchronic); association of themes and motifs on a individual artifact and/or in a monumental context; trasmissions to the post-ancient figurative culture.

Detailed schedule of the arguments (syllabus) will be available from the begining of the course in the Moodle platform.

Assessment

Oral exam. The attending student is expected to demonstrate the knowledge and comprehension of themes treated during the classes and of the above mentioned texts. He must demonstrate to have acquired an autonomous knowledge of the matter, a capacity of recognizing and adequately analyzing the monuments on the base of the images of them; a capacity of contextualizing correctly them in reference to the geographical, historical, and cultural ambit of relevance; a capacity of exposing the matter with an appropriate language.

Assessments of excellence: the student demonstrates capacity in displaying contents and theories directly, coherently, and extensively, with ability to critically evaluate; with appropriate use of the specialistic language.

Distinct assessments: the student demonstrates a competent level in displaying contents and theories appropriately, without any major errors or omissions; with some ability to critically evaluate; with an adeguate specialistic language.

Discrete assessments: the student demonstrates an acceptable level of modest, but clear knowledge; a limitated ability to critically evaluate; a little adeguate specialistic language.

Sufficient assessments: the student demonstrates minimal knowledge, with lacks in arguments and concepts and with the use of inappropriate language.

Negative evaluations: the student demonstrates serious lacks in arguments, concepts and language.
