ITAL 3000 - Italian Culture (in English) I—From Antiquity to 1800


3 cr. 3 hr. This course may be offered less than once every two years.

Taught in English, this introduction to Italian culture from Roman times to 1800, introduces students to literary texts such as those by Dante, poet of the Inferno; the brazen storyteller Boccaccio; the political scientist Machiavelli; and the brilliant playwright Goldoni in their historical context. The course also treats architecture (Roman, Medieval, Renaissance), art (Giotto, Masaccio, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Caravaggio, etc.), and music (madrigals, early opera, baroque). Students will come to comprehend the beauty and complexity of Italian culture, as well as reflect upon the way it has shaped their own experience. There are no prerequisites for this course.
