​Food, Culture and Society in Italy


Conducted in English


Florence14.jpg


This course is targeted toward students with an interest in Italian food traditions, society, and culture. The main focus consists of what is generally defined as “made in Italy” culture and style in post-war Italy. Also covered are the relationships between Italian traditions, folklore, and contemporary Italian society, drawing from examples including festivals, food, tourism, and the economy, and the influence of foreign civilizations. Students will be asked to regard the subject of food outside of the context of ingredients and the procedures used to create a dish; we will instead examine a large-scale context in which food is featured as either a main component or an integral element in cultural situations. Thus the student is asked first and foremost to observe the presented material across an anthropological lens that roves over the entire Italian peninsula. Course activities include tours and cooking and tasting lessons.
