ITAL 8830 Bernini and the Baroque (Fall: 3 )
An interdisciplinary study of the art, literature and culture of the Baroque age (ca. 1600-1680), focusing on its epicenter, the city of Rome, and on the one artist who more than any other defined and disseminated that style, Gian Lorenzo Bernni. Against the backdrop of the political and institutional crises and social-religious metamorphoses of the period, we will explore the fertile and intimate inter-relationship between the arts (sculpture, architecture, theater, music) and the other forms of cultural expression.
