Overview

The Bachelor’s degree offers an in-depth encounter with Italian language, tradition, and cultural heritage. Focusing on the centuries when Italy led Western art and literature, i.e. the late Middle Ages and Renaissance, it adopts a cross-disciplinary approach combining the study of texts, images, music, and performative arts. Strong theoretical courses are combined with interactive workshops in libraries, museums, and cultural institutions, for an on-site exploration of Italian culture.
