The course is conceived as a natural continuation of the previous module in History of Modern Art and Territorial Enhancement and, starting from a necessary chronological survey on the development of the main art movements of the 19th and 20th centuries, it intends to deepen the aspects related to the enhancement of the contemporary historical-artistic heritage for participative, popular and tourist purposes with specific case studies on the Ligurian territory.
The course aims to provide adequate knowledge of the languages of contemporary art and to highlight the potential of their use for cultural promotion and tourism promotion of the territory.

At the end of the course the student must have acquired adequate knowledge and an effective ability to understand the dynamics of artistic production in the contemporary age, with particular attention to the valorisation and promotion of the Ligurian territory; he/she must be able to apply the knowledge acquired showing the ability to "read" a work of art of the contemporary age; must be able to use the acquired knowledge both on a conceptual and operational level with autonomous evaluation capacity and with ability in the various application contexts; must develop adequate learning skills that allow him/her to continue to deepen autonomously the main themes of the discipline, especially in the working contexts in which he/she will operate.

Oral examination in the form of an interview designed to test learning of the course content.
The minimum threshold of knowledge for passing the examination consists in knowing how to orient oneself in the chronology of contemporary art history, expressing oneself with correct and adequate language. At a higher level is the student who supplements this minimum preparation with a deeper and broader mastery of the topics covered in the course. Excellence is achieved by developing, on the basis of the above, relevant critical connections and additions resulting from personal research or reasoning.
