Learning Objectives

The course aims to achieve mastery of the procedures that characterize the foundations of historical-artistic master's training, in particular by activating the historical-philological method, combining theoretical knowledge and practice for the achievement of a high profile, indispensable in the exercise of teaching professionalism and in every possible application of the Master's Degree in History of Art.

The course aims to educate to the knowledge and recognition of styles: of an artist, of a movement, of an era, connoting their exclusive and recurring characters, in order to make students able to recognize artists and works.

The form as content opens to the understanding of the context and therefore of the history that makes that language possible: recognizing the style therefore means knowing the development of the history of art starting from its most direct expression, the formal one: the language of forms.

Artists, schools, movements in the various historical-artistic junctions will be selected, identifying the styles, their formation and diffusion, the similarities and differences and the courses and recurrences even in large spans of time.

Program

The course program aims to educate in the reading of images and will refer to comparisons between works and artists, trying to gradually reach an understanding of styles, starting from the most general topics to get to the individual historical-artistic moments, artists, works, movements .

The course will focus on some aspects of art between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, in particular in the context of the Urbino court and around the dominant figure of Federico Barocci, painter, draftsman, engraver, protagonist on a European level but viscerally linked to his Urbino.

Particular attention will be paid to the theme of training, in the context still lapped by the Raphaelesque and Renaissance heritage, to follow the composition of Barocci's style, in an articulated and innovative path, in the cultural panorama of the Counter-Reformation, where the new naturalist and modern sensibility emerges.

The study path will mainly focus on:

1. What is style in the work of art but also in its broader expressive reflections in the images.

2. Style of an era, style of a movement, style of an art school.

3. Masters and pupils.

4. Exercises in attribution.

6. Federico Barocci, training, models, developments, sectors of activity, legacy.

7. Federico Barocci, a style, a school, a legacy.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Historical-artistic disciplines' and culture area.

1. Knowledge and understanding: master's students must achieve specialized knowledge and understanding of the reading of images and the historical and contextual processes of their formation. They will have to reach the mastery of the basic knowledge related to the identification of works and artists in their time, school, territory, knowing how to evaluate quality and relationships, comparisons with similar and different works, finally reach a mature ability to read the works, characterizing the context .

Students acquire this knowledge through the attendance of lectures,  classroom exercises led by the teacher and through the study of the exam texts, as well as through participation in seminars and, if possible, visits to exhibitions and museums.

2. Apply knowledge and understanding: master's students must be able to apply the methodologies of historical-artistic study and to apply the knowledge and the ability to understand the processes of birth, growth and decline of historical-artistic phenomena, in their relationship with society and contexts, coming to read similarities and differences between different expressions of style and history of art in time and space.

Students acquire this knowledge by attending lectures, conducting classroom exercises led by the teacher and by studying the exam texts, as well as through participation in seminars and, if possible, visits to exhibitions and museums.

3. Judgment skills: master's students must achieve critical judgment skills on works, artists, movements, on their meanings and on the relationship with the public, as well as with the variation of taste that entails changes in the reception of works in different periods, with particular attention to the connection and to the changes linked to contemporaneity.

Students acquire these skills through classroom discussions with the teacher and colleagues during lessons, exercises and group work, and in preparing for the final exam.

4. Communication skills: students must possess written and oral communication skills in Italian, expression skills and competence in the use of the specialized language of the discipline.

Students acquire these skills by interacting in the classroom through questions, answers to the teacher's requests, exchanges with fellow students, making public presentations of exercises and group work, writing a report on the research work carried out in the field of the course, seminars, final exam.

5. Learning skills: The student will have to show an understanding of the concepts and will have to provide examples based on the models learned, in recognizing and comparing the works, be able to identify the geographical area, chronology and quality of the works even at a first reading of they, in addition to connote those studied with further comparisons and historical-critical evaluations also in view of further studies. The student will have to acquire a mature historical-philological profile.

Students acquire these skills through classroom discussion, comparison with classmates during lessons and exercises, argumentation of the answers to the teacher's questions during lessons, presentation of group work and during the exam.
