Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The student will be evaluated:

1) on the ability to be able to express a critical independent judgment based on sound scientific bases on the reading of the monuments;

2) the ability to learn and understand the notions of the discipline of the history of architecture in order to make them part of their cultural baggage;

3) the ability to collect, synthesize and interpret scientifically the collected data relating to the study of a monument;

4) the communicative ability to express their thoughts with appropriate terminology;

5 ) the ability to be able to graphically return a critical and direct reading of the monuments.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

During the course, the teaching material will be distributed electronically.

In addition, bibliographical references will be provided on the specific topics discussed for further details.

The teaching material and the teacher's specific communications can be found, together with other support activities, within the

Moodle platform > blended.uniurb.it

Along with the students, any visits to the Urbino monuments will be agreed to jointly verify the acquired knowledge.


Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

In order to refine the manual skills of the students, during the course, concrete graphic exercises will be performed, during which, the theoretical assumptions of the course can be verified. Students will be guided to the reading - for example, of the object analyzed in laboratory exercises – to the production of a opportune photographic documentation, the collection of all the sketches necessary to understand the state of facts but, above all, to the drawing up of direct relief graphs, produced in opportune scale, that allows the implementation of a model on which it will be easy to draw up the pre-established design objectives for solving the main restoration problems.

In order to pass the exam, it is mandatory for each student to prepare a term paper that will cover the critical historical analysis of a monument, and the choice of the latter will be agreed with the teacher. The term paper must be delivered in digital format at least 10 days before the exam.
