Objectives
THE COURSE AIMS AT PROVIDING INDISPENSABLE ELEMENTS AND METHODOLOGICAL TOOLS FOR LEARNING AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE MAIN THEMES, APPROACHES AND CONCEPTS OF CONTEMPORARY AESTHETIC STUDIES AND THEORIES OF IMAGES, WITH PARTICULAR REGARD TO THE ICONIC PRODUCTION AND LANGUAGES OF NEW DIGITAL MEDIA AND COMMUNICATION, ORDINARY, SECTORIAL AND INTEGRATED.
STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE CONTEMPORARY ICON-SPHERE AND USER-GENERATED CONTENT IN RELATION TO THE SPREAD OF PARTICIPATORY DIGITAL CULTURES AND NEW TECHNOLOGICAL TOOLS AND DEVICES, AND TO ANALYZE EXEMPLARY CASE STUDIES IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY AND CRITICALLY APPLY THE APPROPRIATE METHODOLOGICAL TOOLS OF DEEP AND CONTEXTUAL RECONSTRUCTION.
STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO ELABORATE AND PRODUCE DIGITAL FORMS AND CONTENTS RELATED TO AESTHETICS, THEORIES OF IMAGES, COMMUNICATION AND CONSUMPTION OF ICONIC DIGITAL PRODUCTS, AS WELL AS TO DEVELOP AN INTERPRETATIVE AND PRODUCTIVE WORKING METHOD THAT IS BOTH CRITICAL AND CREATIVE, NECESSARY TO PRESENT, WITH PAPERS OR INDIVIDUAL AND/OR GROUP MEDIA PRODUCTS, THE RESULTS OF SPECIFIC ANALYSES AND AUTONOMOUS PROPOSALS RELATED TO AREAS, ASPECTS AND CASE-STUDIES.
STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO APPLY THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS IN OTHER DISCIPLINARY, LEARNING AND PROFESSIONAL CONTEXTS RELATED TO AESTHETICS AND ICONIC PRODUCTIONS AND ICT.
THE FINAL EXAMINATION CONSISTS OF AN ORAL TEST THAT WILL DULY CONSIDER, IN QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE TERMS, THE INTER-COURSE, INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP TESTS THAT WILL BE CARRIED OUT BY THE ATTENDING STUDENTS WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE AUDIOVISUAL STORYTELLING LABORATORY-LABSAV, IN COLLABORATION WITH THE FESTIVAL LINEA D'OMBRA, AND THAT WILL CONSIST OF THE REALIZATION OF AN AUDIOVISUAL PRODUCT AND A SCHOLAR PAPER.

Contents
AESTHETICS PRIMARILY CONCERN THE AISTHESIS, I.E. THE SENSES AND THE SENSITIVITY, THE BODILY EXPERIENCES NOT RESTRICTED TO THE "WORLD OF ART" BUT FELT AND SHARED IN THE DAILY "WORLD OF LIFE" AND IN THE FIELD OF THE ARTIFY AND AESTHETICATION IN GENERAL. THE COURSE WILL EXAMINE UNEXPECTED OR ROUTINEERS FABRICATIONS, TRANSMISSIONS AND FRUITION OF BEHAVIORS, GESTURES AND AESTHETIC ACTIONS: NO LONGER LIMITED TO WORKS OF ART AND THEIR INSTITUTIONAL SITES, BUT CREATED AND FELT BY EACH OF US IN ORDINARY LIFE AND IN PUBLIC AND PRIVATES, I.E. SECRETS PLACES, DOING A THOUSAND THINGS AND USING A THOUSAND OBJECTS, AS WELL AS PHOTOGRAPHED, FILMED, IN SHORT PRODUCED AND PARTICIPATED THROUGH THE MEDIA AND COMMUNICATION TOOLS OMNIPRESENT AND PERVASIVE IN OUR AGENDAS, THESE EXPERIENCES OF ORDINARY LIFE REALIZE AND REQUIRE PARTICULAR ATTENTION. THE COURSE WILL INVESTIGATE THE WAYS OF MAKING AND THE AESTHETIC PRACTICES THAT, MORE OR LESS PERCEIVED OR HABITUAL, THEMED OR SUFFERED, MARK AND CHARACTERIZE OUR BEHAVIORS AND ROUTINES, OUR TASTES AND CONSUMPTION, FINALLY OUR SOCIAL LIFE AND SOCIAL IDENTITIES, FROM WALKING IN OUR CITIES TO BODY CARE, FROM FOOD TO FASHION, FROM EVERYDAY OBJECTS TO SMARTPHONE.
THANKS TO THE MANY TEXTUAL MATERIALS–LITERARY, THEORETICAL AND CRITICAL–AND ICONIC–ARTISTIC AND NON-ARTISTIC, CINEMATOGRAPHIC AND FILMIC, DOCUMENTARIES, ETC.–, WHICH WILL BE PRESENTED AND DISCUSSED, BUT THANKS ALSO BY THE PRACTICAL AND CREATIVE CHECKS WITH THE STUDENTS DURING AN AD HOC WORKSHOP –ALSO CARRIED OUT IN COLLABORATION WITH THE FESTIVAL LINEA D’OMBRA –, THE COURSE AIMS TO PROVIDE THE ELEMENTS AND TOOLS USEFUL FOR UNDERSTANDING THE CONTEMPORARY AESTHETIC DEBATE ON THE ORDINARY LIFE.
Teaching Methods
THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL LESSONS AND PRACTICAL EXERCISES.
Verification of learning
CONSTANT CHECKS, GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL, AND THE CREATION OF AN AUDIOVISUAL PRODUCT OR A SCHOLAR PAPER, WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE AUDIOVISUAL STORYTELLING LABORATORY-LABSAV AND IN COLLABORATION WITH THE FESTIVAL LINEA D'OMBRA.
