Learning Objectives

The course aims to address both the artistic production in the periods of the history of art mentioned above and the acquisition of some basic principles useful for a critical reading of the artwork and its didactic transposition. In particular, the course aims to provide students with the knowledge and the understanding of:

  • all major periods in the history of art, the development of the artistic language and of some of its protagonists;
  • critical reading of the artwork from the iconographic and iconological point of view
  • analysis of the artwork in accordance with poietic principles and operational principles of practice
  • analysis of the cognitive aspects implied in the production and use of the artwork;
  • methods and techniques of the didactic transposition of the art work

Program

The course will address some periods of the history of art in order to let students acquire knowledge on the artistic production and also on the ontogenetic aspects - both graphic and cognitive - involved in the production processes themselves. In particular, the course will deal with Prehistoric art (sign and representation); Egyptian art (semantics of the sign); Greek art (canon, style and metarepresentation); Renaissance art (symbol, allegory and hermeticism); Modern art (pictorial language and reality). The lessons will take into account historical, artistic, cognitive and didactic aspects relative to the periods listed above.

Bridging Courses

None.
