Learning objectives
The course aims at providing a philological preparation to achieve the educational objective of the degree course, more specifically a preparation on the characteristics and the questions posed by the study of maps in the context of author philology.
The study of maps in the context of author philology. As far as printed books are concerned, by presenting the work of typography from the first centuries up to contemporary times, students will be provided with the tools with which to carry out a philological investigation of a printed book; as far as authorship philology is concerned, students will be provided with useful tools for the investigation of authorship maps and philological skills that will enable them to prepare a critically and scientifically correct edition.
Expected learning outcomes
Knowledge: At the end of the course, students will acquire knowledge of the methods of production and edition of printed books, in the ancient typographic regime and in the modern and contemporary age, on the one hand, and, on the other, knowledge of the methods of study of author's papers and the problems posed by their edition.

Competences: At the end of the course, students will acquire both the ability to investigate from a philological point of view specimens of ancient and modern books, and the competence necessary to deal with writers' autographs and to define the characteristics that their publication may have.
