OVERVIEW

The fundamental directions of Ligurian artistic dynamics in the modern age will be reconstructed by analysing images presented in lectures and by direct contact with artistic and architectural objects in Genoa.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to give students knowledge of the fundamental characteristics of Ligurian art from the second half of the 15th century to the first half of the 18th century in relation to the history of Italian and European art in the same chronological period.

The course aims to provide students with knowledge and skills related to the dynamics of artistic production in the Ligurian territory between the fifteenth and early eighteenth centuries.

Specifically, at the end of the cpurse students must be able to:

- place works of art and artists in a correct timeline, linking the artefacts to the historical context and  the society in which they were produced;
- remember the contents of the lessons they attendend and of the set bibliography they studied;
- demonstrate that they possess the critical tools necessary for the analysis of images relevant to the course;
- apply the theoretical knowledge acquired to concrete case studies.

Teaching methods

Lectures with PowerPoint presentations; lectures in the field; discussions during lectures.
