Contents
WHY IS THE RENAISSANCE SO CENTRAL TO THE HISTORY OF WESTERN ART HISTORY? AND WHY, DESPITE THE CONSTANT REVISION TO WHICH THE MOST RECENT HISTORIOGRAPHIC DEBATE HAS SUBJECTED THE RENAISSANCE MYTH AS A "CULTURAL MIRACLE", STILL TODAY "WHEN HE HEARS THE WORD RENAISSANCE, DOES THE DREAMER OF ANCIENT BEAUTY SEE PURPLE AND GOLD?" STARTING FROM AN INCREDIBLY UP TO DATE ESSAY BY THE DUTCH HISTORIAN JOHAN HUIZINGA (1920), THE COURSE AIMS TO RECONSTRUCT THE EVOLUTION OF OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE RENAISSANCE, FROM "BAPTISM" IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY, TO THE RE-EVALUATION OF ITS CHARACTERS AND ITS CHRONOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL BOUNDARIES IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, THE AFFIRMATION OF ITS VALUE AS AN ORGANIZING CONCEPT OF MODERNITY AND ITS REFUSAL, ACTIVATED BY THE PERSPECTIVES OF THE CURRENT DEBATE ON THE "CRISIS IN THE ART HISTORY" AND THE EPISTEMOLOGICAL OCCASIONS OF THE NEW "GLOBAL ARTISTIC GEOGRAPHY". TO EXPLORE, THROUGH THE CULTURAL MEANING OF THE NOTION FOR MANY GENERATIONS, "THE EVER-CHANGING POINTS" WHERE, HUIZINGA WROTE, "THE DIVIDING LINES BETWEEN OLD AND NEW" PASS.
