Among Bologna’s famous nicknames, “la grassa” refers to its rich and varied cuisine, which can be enjoyed in the numerous restaurants and trattorie, and in the traditional markets and food shops lining the medieval streets of the city. Culinary tradition is an integral part of the region’s identity, and Bologna boasts some of the best-known Italian dishes as its own: lasagne, tortellini, tagliatelle, and the famous meat ragù are all proudly Bolognese. Cured meats and aged cheeses welcome the visitors to the ancient delis in the Quadrilatero, the old market area near Piazza Maggiore. Local produce is also for sale every Saturday at the Slow Food farmers’ market (Mercato della Terra) near the Cineteca.… Continue reading

Theatre Syllabus Prof. Gabriele Marchesini
The course takes a general approach to acting styles, providing a direct and in-depth involvement with the Italian language as it mediates between the theory and the practice of theatrical literature, a literature conceived as a recited art rather than as one to be read. This way, we approach the theatre as protagonists, rather than simply practicing our knowledge of another language and culture. Following a series of lectures on the theory of theatre, we will move into readings and analyses of a text or several texts by a chosen author (the selections will depend on the number and gender of participants). Next, we will memorize lines and rehearse in the theater itself to prepare for the final performance. The goal of the course is not to present an entire play, but rather to create a seminar-laboratory type of atmosphere in which to learn individual roles and focus on the interaction with the group. Given that this is a very intense course, student participants must commit to coming to all class meetings.… Continue reading
Italian Literature Syllabus Vanessa Pietrantonio
In the first half of the nineteenth century, some European writers opted to avoid realistic descriptions in favor of images that were hallucinatory, ambiguous, murky, vague, or misshapen. Such images were often housed in infinite or incomplete spaces, in places where horrors were depicted by grotesque figures, painful grimaces, or decomposing bodies. Illustrious authors such as Victor Hugo, Edgar Allan Poe, and Charles Dickens, to name a few, were all part of this strain of writing, which also included the Italian writers Alessandro Manzoni, Giacomo Leopardi, and Giovanni Verga.… Continue reading

History of Art Syllabus Lucia Corrain
The goal of the course is to trace a path through Italian artistic production, with a chronological span encompassing the second half of the nineteenth century through the end of the twentieth century. The focus on Italy will be presented in close relationship with European and extra-European experiences, as contemporary art is not confined to a single geographic location. Examined in a way that reveals their close interrelationship, the guiding threads of the course are two: the first has to do with history and the chronological evolution of artistic changes and transformations; … Continue reading
