More a reinvention than a revival in classical culture, the phenomenon of the Italian Renaissance was a moment of profound historic significance that still resonates today. This course will review the period and consider the cultural drivers which helped shape the key achievements in literature, architecture, sculpture and painting. We will look at things both chronologically and geographically and by the end you will have real grasp of key events, people, places and most importantly, the art! All-comers welcome.
