THE COURSE

Spiritual geography of America exhibits a rich and deep, extraordinary density both for the variety of its original components as the results of their merger. That is why, if I had to highlight just one among the many features of such a profile it should be undoubtedly miscegenation: mixture of races, languages, mythologies; mixing of religions, philosophies, political systems, economic practices, social orders; mix of scientific and esoteric knowledge, technologies, gastronomy, arts and letters, architectures. Miscegenation of cultures.

This is an introductory course in art and architecture, especially designed for students from other academic areas so it is not necessary to have previous knowledge on the subject. In each class will try to learn to "read" the works and to understand through analysis behind what we see: how the work was generated, in that context was thought, what ideas represents, what is the personal story of its author and much more....
