Overview

This short-course offers an insight into Italian culture and society during the fascism age, described from different angles: its origins, the role of violence as a political tool, the impact in the country and the reasons of its spread between the two World Wars.

The course will provide an introduction to methods and materials to approach such period and a reflection on the heritage that was left in Italy, for example, by the fascist architecture.

Programme structure

The course will start on July the 1st and end by July the 10th. It will be divided into lectures (8 hours), teamwork projects (18 hours) and a final session to present and discuss the projects (3 hours), including an award ceremony for the best project.

The winners will be invited to take part in an on-site follow-up to visit museums, archives and libraries they have been working on during the Summer Term.

It is possible to apply for one or more courses. If you apply for more than one, the Summer term comission will assign you to the course that better fits your academic background and motivation.
