Every year, in October, the Italian Language Week (Settimana della lingua italiana) takes place. As in the past two years, also this time Bryn Mawr and Haverford students participated to the event with a multimedia presentation.
This year’s themes were “Italy of the territories” and “Italy of the future”.
Students of ITAL201 (Italian Culture and Society), taught by Dr. Giuliana Perco, collaborated to prepare a very interesting and multi-faceted group presentation on music and dialects. More specifically, Camila, Ruby, Adriana, Sarah, Grace, Amanda, Jadil and Vanessa focused their work on contemporary songs dedicated to emigration and immigration and written in several different Italian dialects. The course is taught by Prof. Giuliana Perco.
The event was organized by the Consulate General of Italy at Philadelphia and hosted at UPenn; it included also presentations from students from Temple University and the University of Pennsylvania.
