PhD candidate Andrea Privitera uses role-playing video games to teach Italian Renaissance Epic poetry because he wants to show how Early Modern literature can be just as exciting as modern-day pop culture.
Explore some major aspects and periods of the history, literature and culture of Italy, while consolidating, refining and further expanding the advanced-level competence that you have built in the previous years. Learn how to express yourself in Italian with increasing accuracy and sophistication.
Breathtaking duels and battles! Mighty warriors! Inescapable romances! Interplanetary journeys! The engaging stories coming straight from the Italian Renaissance are every bit as exciting as the latest Marvel movie or the next Star Wars episode.
