OVERVIEW

Through the analysis of historical and archaeological contexts, the “Archaeology and history of Greek and Roman art” course proposes a presentation of different “phenomena” that influenced artistic activity and contributed to the creation of the main monuments of Greek and Roman civilisation.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The “Archaeology and history of Greek and Roman art” course aims to give an overall framework of history of ancient art and the historical development of Greek and Roman material culture from the 11th century BC to the 4th century AD.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The “Archaeology and history of Greek and Roman art” course aims to give a method useful for a better understanding of the different periods of classical art, highlighting how the relationship with “art” is very different in Greek culture compared with Roman culture; moreover, the course wishes to highlight all those factors that enable understanding the passage and transition from classical art during late antiquity to medieval art.

EXAMS

Exam description

Oral exam

Assessment methods

The exam is prevalently oral but there is the possibility for students who attend the course (9 cfu) to take an optional written exam on the module that was studied in depth.

The oral exam assesses basic knowledge of the development of ancient Greek and Roman art that demonstrates the capacity to geographically and historically contextualise topics being examined and the ability to expound clearly and with the appropriate language. Attaining this knowledge is the threshold to pass the exam whereas the excellence threshold is attained by demonstrating a strong critical and speculative capacity as well as the ability to connect and specify different historical-artistic phenomena in various contexts.

Possibility of participating in the annual excavation in Nora- CA.
