In the first part of the course the tools of historical-artistic research will be analysed: sources, archive documentation, figurative documentation, historiography, data from technical-scientific analysis and restoration. Subsequently, the history of artistic historiography from Giorgio Vasari to the 20th century will be sketched and possible paths of historical-artistic research will be discussed with particular attention to issues concerning periodisation, definition of styles, identification of executive techniques, examination of processes of production and circulation of artefacts and collecting.
