This issue of RSA, dedicated to five case studies (Milan, Venice, Florence, Naples, Palermo) in a chronological span from the Napoleonic period to the Gentile Reformation, is born of a twofold reason: to enter into the merit of the recent discussion on the relationship between scholarly discourses and contemporary art ("Journal of Art Historiography", 19, 2018, fasc. edited by E. Vratskidou) and on the specific contribution of artist-historians to the development of the discipline ("Histoire de l'art", 79/2, 2016, fasc. edited by J. Lavie and P. Sérié) and at the same time to focus on an aspect marginalized also by studies on the history of the Academies, which only recently have returned to deepen their cultural and educational identity. All the essays reconstruct the process of transformation of theoretical teaching, defined in the first lines of history, mythology and aesthetics that contributed to the history of Italian art, describing its cultural, methodological and institutional impact. The archival researches have brought to light the names and cultural background of the teachers, but not always the curricula and teaching methods, while there are still the manuals and some teaching materials adopted during the lessons. The contributors to this issue are: Francesca Valli (Milan), Alexander Auf der Heyde (Venice), Cristina Frulli (Florence), Sandro Morachioli (Naples) and Massimiliano Marafon Pecoraro (Palermo).
