ITAL 425 - Fr Mazzini to the Euro
This course examines the birth and development of the idea of Europe in the Italian literary and cultural framework, from key figures of the "Risorgimento" through modernist and postwar writers, up to novelists and intellectuals of the new millennium. A comparative and interdisciplinary dialogue between the Italian "case" and other European visions offers additional insights into the role of the European consciousness in the tug of war between the preservation of a national (or even regional) identity and the drive towards globalization. Readings include texts by Mazzini, Savino, Piovene, Spinelli, Magris, Parks, and Baricco. This is a variable-credit course, which can be taken for 3 or 4 credits. Conducted in Italian.
