L’architettura del Deccan tra il XIV e il XVI secolo. Incontri, sincretismi e costruzioni identitarie

L’architettura del Deccan tra il XIV e il XVI secolo. Incontri, sincretismi e costruzioni identitarie

Description

Moving from the analysis of the architectural style promoted by the Bahmani dynasty (1347-1527) in Deccan, the volume intends to offer a cross section of the social, religious and cultural complexity of the region.
The identification of artistic models and vocabularies allows, as a matter of fact, to redefine conflicts and encounters in the region and to outline the reshaping of the diverse identities throughout the decades.
The described scenario, together with the sharing of spaces and rituals, reveals the inapplicability of the preconceived categories that generally dominate the South Asian studies even in the artistic field: it rather redraws the Subcontinent’s sacred geographies and the relations among the communities settled in the region.
