Nel corso della storia, l’Italia ha sempre dovuto fare i conti con le profonde spaccature culturali, familiari, politiche e sociali che ancora oggi si riflettono nel presente.

In questo corso verrà esaminato materiale appartenente a diverse epoche storiche: racconti di esercizio di potere e diplomazia, situazioni di oppressione e lotte per la libertà e diritti saranno esaminati  attraverso la letteratura – Machiavelli, Pasolini, Saviano per citare alcuni nomi – ma anche attraverso mappe, filmati e grafici, che verranno messi a disposizione degli studenti per arricchire il vocabolario e per stimolare dibattiti e confronti di idee.

Il corso è organizzato in CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) ed è consigliato per studenti di livello avanzato (E+) al fine di ampliare vocabolario, conoscenze e sviluppare pensiero critico.
