2) is familiar with the most relevant facts concerning Italian language, history, geography, artistic and cultural heritage and society

The theme of the course is “A Journey to Italy”: the course will lead you to a journey through different aspects of Italian culture and encourage you to compare your knowledge and opinions about the country and its people with your course mates in a multicultural atmosphere.

The course consists of three study units:
1) My portrait of Italy. The module aims at encouraging reflection and discussion on student’s previous knowledge, thoughts and opinions of Italian culture. The students will analyse the elements that build their own “portrait of Italy”.
2) Italy: Facts and figures. The module provides general, factual information about Italian language, history, geography, artistic and cultural heritage and society.
3) Italian culture and my field of studies. In this module, each student (or group of students) will have the opportunity to examine a topic of their choice that is related to Italian culture and relevant to their own field of studies.
