This experiential workshop immerses students in European culture both past and present through two courses over five weeks. The European film class underlines the difference between European and American cinema taking Italian neorealism as a starting point, and focusing on the basic distinction between Realism and Formalism in cinematic theory. The journalism class teaches the theory and practice of narrative storytelling about food in the birthplace of the Slow Food Movement.  Students will study Italian food history, growing practices and food preparation, then craft their own multimedia narrative stories as freelance journalists.
