EUS 347 • Art & The City In Renais Italy

Florence, Venice, Siena: the cultural landscape of Italy is dominated by a series of cities so unique and rich in artistic treasures that any one example is worthy of a whole course of study. We begin, as a class, with the most famous and paradigmatic of all the Renaissance city-states, Florence. We will explore the development of art and architecture in a number of settings: civic, ecclesiastic, monastic, palatial, and private. This encompasses such grand projects as Brunelleschi’s dome for the Cathedral as well as private, secular decoration in the Davanzati Palace. We will also examine the cities of Venice and Siena; each of these cities is distinguished by its own unique style of painting, architecture, and issues of urban planning. At the end of the semester, students will work together, in small groups, on urbanistic studies of some of Italy’s lesser-known cities, such as Ferrara, Padua, Mantua, or Urbino.
