- Course Description
Travel, discovery, exploration and the unknown have always fascinated human kind: travel through space and time; through life and the afterlife; through labyrinths and emptiness.
In this course, we will explore different kinds of travel in Italian art, music, literature, comic books, and films, focusing on Italian society and culture from the 1960’s to the present. We will discover what Italian literature and culture have in common with Jack Kerouac and the ways in which Italians have been trying to escape the labyrinth of contemporary reality.
“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.” (from Jack Kerouac, "On the Road")
