The Italian course through literature, history and cinema is aimed to students who already have a knowledge of the Italian language and are interested in knowing and deepening their knowledge of the many aspects that make up the Italian identity. Italian literature, Italian history, and Italian cinema are the resources we will draw from to deepen our knowledge of Italy in an original and exciting way.
Have you ever read a fairy tale by Calvino? What do you know about Dante and his works? Have you ever come across young writers and young contemporary writers? Have you ever seen a film about Italian neorealism? Do you know the films and directors that tell the story of Italy today in the world? Have you perhaps read Camilleri or seen the series based on his stories? And what do you know about the history of the Italian language?
If questions like these make you curious, this is the course for you!
Making progress with the Italian language through the great classics of literature, fairy tales, contemporary literature, through the history of the Italian language and cinema, will be a discovery that will surprise you.
You will have the opportunity to work with an expert teacher, in a very small group, putting your Italian into practice and discovering the many different aspects of the Italian culture so loved in the world. You will approach the Italian identity through the works of great writers and directors, which will allow you to live the Italian language as if it were your own.
The curriculum is built around the real interests of the participants to make students always protagonists of their study path.
