Cult Soc&Prvt Life Renaissance

Culture, Social Life and Private Life in the Renaissance

The course aims to illustrate not only the historical context but also the civil and social life of Renaissance civilization (XVI century). Specific topics covered in the course, along with the literary, scientific and artistic works, will be the conditions of daily life in the city and countryside, with special focus on gastronomy, clothing, and the practice of medicine across the various social classes. Ultimately the course will offer a broad perspective of Renaissance culture from both a historical and cultural standpoint.
