Overview

This Summer Term offers an insight into the Italian culture and the political society during the late Middle age (1300 – 1400). New ways of conceiving the public life were in place, from a wider concept of participation to the political life, to the need of a deeper organization of cities, by statutes and land registries.

Italian urban culture and politics by that age are an interesting case study to understand concepts as exile, stigma over tyranny, democracy and citizenship.

Programme structure

The course will start on July the 6th and end by July the 17th. It will be divided into lectures (8 hours), teamwork projects (18 hours) and a final session to present and discuss the projects (3 hours), including an award ceremony for the best project.

The winners will be invited to take part in an on-site follow-up to visit museums, archives and libraries they have been working on during the Summer Term.

It is possible to apply for one or more courses. If you apply for more than one, the Summer term comission will assign you to the course that better fits your academic background and motivation. See all courses overview at this link: ___
