Through the lectures and the training the course proposes to provide the knowledge and the basis of Roman civilization (arts, architecture, town planning) from the origins to the Middle Ages considering also the relations with other cultures (in particular with the Greeks). And of course including the social, political, economical and cultural backgrounds in which the art expressions (historical and plebeian reliefs, portrait, monuments, mosaics) are developed.

The Knights: on the trace of Ancient Conquerors
The course offers lectures and a series of multidisciplinary visits that illustrate the close connection between architecture and history on the Italian territory. The course introduces students to the evolution of medieval architecture in Italy, in chronological order from the early Christian era and the Gothic period up to the study of the major architectural works built in the early Christian period, in the Barbarian kingdoms, in the Carolingian era. The courses are schedules, overviews and analysis of the main medieval monuments in Italy to identify the changes and the persistence of the architecture models during the Middle Ages and will enhance the knowledge of architectural forms based on the original intended use.

During the second part of the course there will be visits some of medieval architecture in the city of Basilicata, both civil and religious, especially the Abbey of the Trinity of Venosa and the Cathedral Acerenza. The visits will enable students to understand those monuments or a works of art that can best embody the spirit of a certain age. For each period presented, in fact, it will be taken into consideration one or more works within the most representative pathways in Basilicata: Frederick route of the castles (Melfi, Lagopesole and Acerenza), route of Norman knights (Miglionico, Irsina and Banzi), route of historical nucleus “Le Rabatane (Tursi, Tricarico and Pietrapertosa).

The main purpose of the course is to provide the basis of knowledge useful to improve the historical- artistic- architectural culture of the rocky civilization in the Middle Age period, typical era of the Rocky Civilization in Murgia Materana and Tarantino areas. Moreover the course will be important to study the rocky art, improving the knowledge through the study of the territory and the expression of the prehistoric populations.

Heraclea and Siris: a tour in the Magna Graecia
The training course sees theoretical and practical lessons, including guided tours to monuments, excavation areas and museums in the Basilicata region; the aim is to develop the knowledge of national and local archaeological heritage. Through the direct study of historical testimonials, students will acquire the understanding of the main historical eras which lead to colonial expansion of the Greek Empire in Italy. Students will focus their attention on specific issues such as Metaponto and Policoro with guided tours to the necropoli of Magna Grecia and to urban areas in order to get a knowledge of the historical and topographic development of Greek cities of southern Italy and Greek art and civilization also through the study of coins, jewels, sculptures etc.

Itinera Acquae: Aqueducts of Ancient Rome
The course will focus on the aqueduct system of ancient Rome, made up of 11 aqueducts built in the period between the republican and imperial periods. Students will learn about the techniques and main characteristics used to build the aqueducts in lectures and visits to archaeological sites in Rome and nearby. The names of the sites to be visited will be communicated during the lectures as they can change due to the bureaucratic difficulties to access most archaeological sites in Rome.

Averno: ancestors worship in ancient Rome
Historically, both inPhotos of Link Campus University, Rome the republican and imperial periods, worshipping ancestors has always been a common practice and a very important one, both culturally and for the different types of underground tombs that hosted the body of the ancestors. The course will analyse both columbarium and catacombs. The names of the sites to be visited will be communicated during the lectures as they can change due to the bureaucratic difficulties to access most archaeological sites in Rome.

The undergrounds of Rome: spelean archaeology
The module will focus on the reasons why Rome is so full of underground constructions and will also give a brief outline of the different types of hypogeum and their main characteristic. The course will be structured in a theory lectures of 3 hours and two full day visits to archaeological sites open to the public. Students will be informed on which sites they will visit during the theoretical lectures, as they can change due to the bureaucratic difficulties to access most archaeological sites in Rome.

Acrobatics Workshop
The course will be of a practical nature and is designed to recognize the level of muscular elasticity and the individual difficulties. Some of the practical exercises will include: patè, flic-flac, falls, comic entrances, cartwheels, all aimed at using acrobatics within the spectrum of comedy gags.

Commedia dell’Arte
The course is based on the Italian “commedia dell’arte” and the use of the mask. There will be a brief amount of work based on Improvisation techniques as used in the similar form of “farsa giullaresca”(a farce based on the commedia characters). There will be research on the history of comedy and an analysis of the different elements which have characterised the different forms of comic theatre. We will discover a theatre founded on the principle of provocation, which becomes self-inventive, thus creating “An industry of entertainment” exploiting the maximum potential of the playful nature of the stage. This means that the dramatic text as used by actors throughout the 16th century is rejected and transformed in a machine able to produce endless shows without the need of a formal playtext. Commedia dell’Arte encapsulated within itself the fascinating secret of having made comedy actors transcend their own time and therefore being able to survive successfully all the way through to our modern age.

Stage Combat with ancient weapons
The workshop aims at exploring, through the principles of biomechanics, the use of the body and the sword. This will happen within the boundaries of a stage where fiction and reality fuse into performance. From the idea of controlling one’s body, we will arrive at the control of a weapon, the sword, which in ancient times was not only used for defense, but also for attacking. Before reaching the sword, the students will have learned other forms of stage combat such as group fighting without weapons and bare fist fighting and the use of the dagger.

Idioma: Language Course and Italian Culture
Learning a language in the country where it is spoken is the best method to learn the language, as well as the culture and history of the country. By studying on our two week ‘Italian Language and Culture’ course you will not only learn and improve your Italian but also have the opportunity to use it, socialize and communicate while taking in the splendors of Rome.
