Italian Culture

The Italian Culture degree comprises a variety of courses aimed at investigating aspirations, accomplishments, and conflicts that characterize Italian society from the Middle Ages to the present. The required courses for this degree program adopt an interdisciplinary approach that favours a cross-examination of historical, social, political, and literary texts, as well as their correlations to coeval artistic expressions, particularly within the context of the visual arts, music, cinema and other media.

This program gives students, from any background, a unique opportunity to develop analytical and critical tools necessary for tackling the complexities of cultural constructs, identities, and social organizations that go beyond the confines of Italy. It provides students with a valuable and stimulating experience of another culture and, at the same time, it makes a significant contribution in building a solid foundation for the study of the Humanities in general.
