The essence of art history lies in its ability to transform the ideas, feelings and information conveyed by art objects into rich and evocative stories. Joaquim Garriga practiced this discipline as an art, narrating eloquently the images and the architecture.
In his memory, this book brings together a series of contributions that draw a time arch that goes from the Middle Ages to the contemporary world and that reveal the variety and fruitfulness of themes, critical registers and methodological approaches to science that he carried out so wisely.
Reading the articles we will discover how art historians move through time, reconstructing the genealogy of a subject, pointing out the aesthetic and historical values of an object, identifying and characterizing their authors, and analysing the functions of artistic works and the relationships that society has maintained and still maintains with them. In short, they make an effort to bring the interested public closer to the heritage treasures that question and amaze us.
