Topics in Italian Cult:

SAME AS ITAL-UA 173.

This course offers the chance to study Italian Renaissance culture within its social and political contexts, focusing especially on the princely courts of northern/central Italy, which were among the most dynamic and innovative cultural centers in Europe in this period. A historical overview will be combined with a focus on particular texts and art-works, and on particular courtly contexts, including the Este and Gonzaga courts in Ferrara and Mantua and the Medici court in Florence. In addition to literature, painting, and sculpture, we will also be looking more generally at the material culture of the courts, at ritual, and at cultural-social practices such as dance, equitation, feasting, and dress.
