AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course of History of Medieval Aart aims to offer an historical panorama of the artistic production in the area of Western and Byzantine Europe between the beginnings of the 4th and the end of the 14th century (about 313-1400, from the age of Constantine to the International Gothic), with extensive references to the art of Islamic civilization.
