Learning outcomes of the course unit

The major aim of the course is to provide the basic archival and bibliographic tools for the analysis and conservation methods of historic gardens (first Dublin Descriptor). To achieve this aim it’s necessary to always use multiple approaches and different methods of analysis observing the Unity of History (second Dublin Descriptor). Undergraduate should be able: to use the acquired knowledge to make personal and mature judgements (third Dublin Descriptor); to use the appropriate technical language (fourth Dublin Descriptor); to establish logical connections between theoretical notions and operational tools to face the complexity of a historical garden (fifth Dublin Descriptor).

Course contents summary

During their last year, students deal again with historical subjects to improve their instruments of critical analysis and historiographical synthesis, in view both of writing their thesis and of coping more knowingly with their future profession. The course aims to give some hints about the study of historical gardens and the methods for its conservation.
