Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide a general framework of reference on the history and culture of the Etruscans also in relation to other ancient populations with which they came into contact. In particular, the course aims to:

1) to give a general framework of reference on the Etruscan civilization; 

 2) to acquaint students with the problems concerning the main centres of Etruria with their settlements and necropolises; 

3) to acquire knowledge of the main monumental complexes and their artistic productions from the Early Iron Age to Hellenism; 

4) to acquire the ability to critically situate artistic productions in the historical, social and economic problems of the various phases;

5) to understand the close links with other contemporary populations of the ancient world in terms of both artistic production and historical and cultural dynamics; 

6) to acquire mastery of the technical language for the description of archaeological evidence;

7) to get to know the potential of multimedia resources for the enhancement and use of the archaeological heritage.  

Program

The course will take place in the first semester and will be divided into the following topics:

  • General Introduction to Etruscology and History of Studies
  • The monuments, material culture and artistic productions of the most important centres of Etruria from the early Iron Age to Romanization through historical, social and economic issues.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding: the student will have to demonstrate, through an oral interview, to have learned and elaborated the content and methodological assumptions of the discipline. The candidate must therefore be able to recognize and well frame the contexts and materials presented during the course in the historical and cultural period of reference.

 Applying knowledge and understanding: the student will also have to demonstrate the possession of the analytical and conceptual tools for the interpretation of archaeological data.

Making judgments: the student will have to demonstrate the ability to discuss with maturity and autonomy of judgement the various issues related to the topics of the course, also inserting them in wider and interdisciplinary contexts.

Communication skills: at the end of the course the student will have to acquire adequate skills and tools to expose in an appropriate manner with awareness and using the technical language.

Lifelong learning skills: the student must have developed the necessary learning skills to undertake further studies and in-depth studies with a high degree of autonomy.

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

Guided tours are planned at some archaeological sites analyzed during the course (Cerveteri and Tarquinia) and at the main museums where Etruscan materials are preserved (Rom, Museum of Villa Giulia; Vatican City, Vatican Museums - Gregorian Etruscan Museum).


Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Frontal lessons. 

Innovative teaching methods

Some topics of the course will be conducted in the Flipped Classroom mode.

Within the course for some topics, the use of multimedia equipment in the 3.00 classrooms is also planned for the illustration of the potential offered by ICT for a better understanding of the materials presented.

Attendance

Frequency strongly recommended. Attending students are those who attend at least 2/3 of the lessons.

Course books

G. Bartoloni (a cura di),  Introduzione all’Etruscologia,  Hoepli editore 2012. 

Lecture notes and slides provided by the lecturer on Moodle  › blended.uniurb.it

Assessment

Oral examination.

The assessment provides that the candidate knows how to frame contexts, monuments and materials through the images that will be proposed by the teacher and that is able to start from these to elaborate a broader discourse on historical, economic and artistic aspects.

The evaluation of the candidate will take place based on the coherence and completeness of the answers, as well as the ability to classify the issues discussed during the lessons.

In the evaluation, it will also be fundamental that the candidate demonstrates the ability to use the technical language  appropriately.

They will give rise to evaluations of excellence: the student's possession of critical abilities in the exposition of the problems inherent in the course, with historical connections and  with the knowledge of contemporary productions of the Greek and Roman world;  the student must also demonstrate an appropriate use of the technical language.

They will give rise to discrete evaluations: the student's possession of a good knowledge of the contents supported by critical ability and use of an appropriate language and the technical vocabulary of the discipline.

They will give rise to sufficient evaluations: the achievement of minimal knowledge on the subjects dealt during the course, even if there are some gaps and  the use of a language not entirely appropriate.

They will give rise to negative evaluations: serious gaps in the discussion on the issues addressed during the course and the use of an inadequate technical language.

 

Disability and Specific Learning Disorders (SLD)

Students who have registered their disability certification or SLD certification with the Inclusion and Right to Study Office can request to use conceptual maps (for keywords) during exams.

To this end, it is necessary to send the maps, two weeks before the exam date, to the course instructor, who will verify their compliance with the university guidelines and may request modifications.
