Learning Objectives

The Winter School “The Italian Renaissance: Art, Literature, Culture”, aims to provide specific knowlege about the Renaissance age to a potentially international audience, with lectures concerning three fundamental aspects of the Italian Renaissance: artistic production, literature and  the social  history and culture of Renaissance architecture, religious practices, women's history, family structures, food, and landscape design. The curricular aims are: (1) To provide systematic and updated knowledge about the most relevant aspects of Italian Renaissance culture. (2) To develop participants'  understanding of themes, historiographic concepts and interpretations of the Italian Renaissance in an interdisciplinary perspective. (3) To provide students with the intellectual and methodological tools necessary to undertake basic research activity and learn to work directly with sources connected with that period (written and visual). For this purpose, the topics presented are: Geography and Periodization of the Renaissance; Politics and Institutions; Art, Patronage and the Commissioning of Artworks; Literature and Venacular Italian Poetry;  the social  history and  Renaissance architecture as illustrated above.   

The Winter School does not exclude students of the University of Urbino, but it is addressed primarily to an audience consisting in students from other institutions, particularly international ones. For this purpose, the courses will be offered entirely in English.

Attendance at courses - in English - will allow participants to acquire knowledge and skills that can be applied internationally in various fields of work, mainly related to teaching (literature, history, philosophy, art history, etc.), to historical research, museum curatorship and cultural communication: publishing, tourism, journalism, the media (traditional and online).
