Program Adventures in worlds never seen before, meetings with fantastic beings, reckless or idyllic places – real or imagined, they went on to colonize legends and myths since times immemorial, enchanting whoever read or listened to them. In this course we will account for the way in which illustrations that accompanied or simply produced such reports achieved prodigious digressions that immortalized them, ending up as autonomous fictions, popular and lively.

Program Rumours fly and reproduce in legends. They are associated to the goddess Fame and can cover truth with darkness just as they can make it drift towards the most wonderful fantasies. The course approaches the fanciful incursions in the field of science that originated legends and fabulous figurations, treated as prodigious discoveries that found an echo in illustrations. Considering the historical period that goes from Antiquity to the 21st Century we will account for various projects of virtuous devices in drawings and in prints that, like a virtual hypertext, made Art profit from the scientific falsities where curiosity won the battle over truth.
