This interdisciplinary course provides an exceptional opportunity for you to study the relationships between film, art, and culture within the context of Italian society. You will be spending three weeks in Rome, studying film and art, and visiting places of historical, cultural, and artistic significance, both in and outside the city.
There will be screenings of full-length feature films (on video/DVD) that deal with Italian art and architecture, followed by visits to actual sites in order to learn how diverse art forms interact with each other. You will be able to examine original art works and study how they are transformed on film, thus developing a dual perspective on the nature of representation itself.
The course is divided into three sections:
You are required to take part in all program activities and to complete all academic work. You will take the 3 credit-upper-division course Film 3402 European Film and Culture: Film and the Italian Aesthetic. Lectures are given both in the classroom and on field trips. All lectures, papers, and exams are in English.
Your grade will be based on the following:

He is the recipient of the Marinus Smith Teaching Award. He will select program participants, host a pre-program orientation, lead the course while abroad, and act as resident director in Italy. His email address is Suranjan.Ganguly@colorado.edu
You will have most weekends, afternoons, and evenings off to explore Rome and its environs. The on-site visits will also allow you time to explore these locations on your own.
