when 16 July 2013 - 28 July 2013
duration 2 weeks
credits 9.9 ECTS

The Italian Renaissance (c. 1350-1550) is a key period in European cultural history. Italian Renaissance writers and artists were instrumental in modeling our view of the individual, of nature and the surrounding world, and by reviving a number of the literary and artistic idioms of classical Antiquity they effectively decided the development of European art and literature for centuries afterwards. This international 2-week summer school will show how Italian Renaissance Humanism produced a broad spectrum of new political, philosophical and scientific ideas, and artistic developments, which became key elements in the formation of modern Europe. It will take advantage of its setting in Rome to explore the relevant sights of Antique and Renaissance Rome and Florence. Teaching will be conducted by a team of experts in Renaissance Humanism, literature, philosophy, language and art.
