This course will examine the impact of the counterculture of 1968 on Italian pop-music, both then and now. Students will analyze authors and musicians who openly took part in the cultural changes proposed at the time, as well as authors who mediated between traditional music and more socially committed music. Our material will include music, videos, documentaries, historical and cultural documents.
Our department offers a wide variety of courses that will pique your interest regardless of your background. Where else can you learn about bodies and machines in the French baroque theater, how languages in close geographic proximity change each other, and the strategies for carrying on a 36-year tradition of one of the most beloved Italian graphic novels ever?
