History Section

This section deals with historical research from the ancient era to the contemporary era, from Italy to Europe, from the West to the world, and studies sources and social, political, cultural and economic phenomena. We pay particular attention to cinema and multimedia language and culture, in relation to historical knowledge, considering them as real factors of history. This section also focuses on figurative arts and the historical and artistic tradition, crediting artistic evidences and artefacts with the text and document status, and their study with a fundamental contribution to methodology.
