OVERVIEW

 

The course presents an anthropological perspective to analyze the ancient iconographic productions and their tradition and persistence both in the context of the culture that produced them and in the history of those who have collected, studied, interpreted and reused them. It is a question of tracing the birth and development of a "historical anthropology of the image" from the theories of A. Warburg, of J. P. Vernant, up to the most recent currents of visual studies and of H. Belting
