PERIOD: MAY - JUNE The course is aimed at the construction of a commonly shared knowledge about the description, interpretation, critics, history and historiography of architecture and the city, in view of the predisposition of a scientific research project and, namely, of the PhD thesis. It is now quite frequent that graduate students, interested in the theory and/or history of architecture and the city, in most cases, have not acquired the ability to locate, read, interprets and write on events, actors, objects of the past as well as the present. At the end of the course, each student will be required to submit a written work, consisting of an annotated bibliography on a topic chosen during the course, as well as a hypothesis of research, elaborated with adequate archival and bibliographical references.

The course will deal with five major issues: 1. METHODS. Basic principles of scientific research. 2. OBJECTS. Case studies, their localization, periodization, and the role of historical documents and new renderings. 3. TOOLS. Libraries and books, archive and documents (cataloguing, inventorying, filling). 4. KNOWLEDGES AND PRACTICES. The nature of discourse about architecture (history, theory, critics) 5. PAPERS. Argumentative writing (basic principles) The ex cathedra lectures by the teachers will be accompanied by a series of interventions by national and international scholars who, presenting their latest research, will highlight their methodologies and practices.
