OVERVIEW

The course aims to deepen the themes and problems of the modern age in relation to the spatial context of our peninsula, where historical events contributed to define a certain political-institutional structure and a certain socio-economic framework. The basic knowledge will be the starting point for the development of reflections on the pre-unification panorama that highlight the differences between the various areas, but at the same time stimulate the search for strong systemic interconnections.

 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to deepen the themes and problems related to the history of the Italian peninsula and its states during the centuries of the ancient regime, through the definition and discussion of different historiographical traditions. The various aspects of a political-institutional, socio-economic and cultural nature will be examined with a diachronic approach and following specific paths for the different state realities. Direct exercises on the sources will be proposed in order to stimulate a critical approach and to understand the actual development of historiographical pathways on the subject.

 

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

There are three objectives that the teaching has set itself:

1) to introduce students to the history of the ancient Italian States, against the background of the more general modern history they have already studied (at different levels) in high schools and in the first university cycle

2) to reflect on the similarity (and specificities) that a comparison between the events of the ancient Italian States and those of the other European States of the same centuries can bring to light

3) to learn the historiographical traditions of the various state contexts and to present the panorama of the sources on which they are based

PREREQUISITES

Basic knowledge of Italian history between the 15th and 18th centuries

Teaching methods

Frontal lectures aimed at providing an overview of the history of the Italian peninsula in a diachronic key between the late Middle Ages and the end of the ancien régime and to deepen the history of individual states. Seminars with the use of sources to deepen the thematic aspects.

The teaching will be carried out, indicatively between September and December, in telematic mode, on the Microsoft Teams platform: the team code is lk198ky
