Italian Culture: The Great Ideas and the Masterworks
This interdisciplinary course examines Italy's contribution to the development of Western culture from the Middle Ages to the Age of Romanticism. We study representative works which illustrate three main aspects of Italian civilization: artistic creation (literature and the visual arts), politics, and philosophy. The focus is on the role played by Italian writers, thinkers, artists, and scientists in shaping the tradition of liberty at the heart of the cultural heritage of the West.
