The focus of this course will be the city of Rome and exploring past and present representations of the eternal city in Italian literature and film. We will focus on late 19th- and 20th-century Rome from the point of view of selected works of Italian literature and cinema in which the city plays a prominent role. Students identify and analyze the connections between texts, ideas, or cultural artifacts and the human experience and/or perception of the world.
