    OVERVIEW

    Starting with the Rome Charter for Maritime Heritage, signed in 2007, a multidisciplinary approach will be developed to all that is considered to be the "maritime cultural heritage", both historical and monumental, floating and submerged. 

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The aim of the course is to narrate the history of maritime human activities through the objects, artefacts and works of art that were produced and used during the centuries between the Middle Ages and the contemporary age. It also aims to analyse the ways in which these objects have become global cultural heritage.

It also aims to analyse the ways in which these objects have become global cultural heritage.

    At the end of the course, the student will be able to analyse, on the basis of a personal in-depth study of the history of one or more objects, the musealisation of these objects related to maritime history.
