English original of a conference paper whose purpose is not to say much significantly new about "graduates of European artistic faculties" 16-18 Centuries, but to point out boundaries of meaning about what scholars do discover. Perhaps by deconstructing and analyzing such heuristic categories of "professional studies", "units of socialization" and the "certification of knowledge" we can gain new insights into the great transformation that universities were beginning to undergo already in the last centuries of the Holy Roman Empire.
