Italian design has been a paragon of modern artistic sensibility throughout the twentieth century. In this course, we will study the historical and cultural development of "Made in Italy", from the 1930s to today. We will consider the representation of products like Vespa motor scooters, Illy coffee and Benetton clothing through print advertisements, photographs, films and more. What is particularly "Italian" about these products and the way they are marketed? How have they contributed to a certain understanding of Italy abroad? How do they navigate the relationship--central to Italian culture--between tradition and modernity? We will consider these questions and more while practicing the skills of reading, listening, writing and speaking in Italian.
