Contemporary Italian Literature (UNINETTUNO)

The module, whose title is “The ways of narrating: the Italian Novel of the Twentieth Century”, deals with the development of the Italian novel in the last century and focuses on its main authors and texts. Beside analysing in depth some leading figures of the Twentieth Century Italian novel, the video-lessons will get an insight into innovative narrative techniques and the author’s relationships with the literary tradition.

Following this path, the student will be able to understand the importance of literature as a form and art of communication and of “translation”, in relation to Italian contemporary literature and culture.
