After an introductory lesson, each student (or group of students) will familiarize themselves with 3-5 subjects related to Italian culture that are relevant to their field of studies or that they otherwise find interesting. The chosen subjects will be presented and discussed during the lessons.
International students are especially welcome to join the course and participate in discussions offering their points of view, thoughts and feelings about Italian culture and their own culture.
