Fiu architecture fall 2014 :
modern italian art history / mapping relationships


The course on Modern Italian Art taught by Matteo Fochessati and Gianni Franzone, curators of the Wolfsoniana collection in Genoa, focuses on the period between the late 19th century and the end of the World Wars, a period of enormous transformation for Italy and the West, artistically, socially and culturally, and the main area of interest of the Wolfsoniana collection.

Instead of writing a paper for the required research component, the students conducted synchronic and diachronic analyses of a work of art, movement or theme covered by the course, and then composed "maps" to represent a network of relationships in which the specific work might be better understood, generating insight into its means, sources, references, and effects, and possibly shedding light on present day situations.
