During Spring 2017, the students of Barbara Alfano’s class Unlocking Italian Culture II capped their second term of elementary Italian with the creation of an original magazine: Occhio all’Italia.
This single magazine issue covers news and culture topics related to contemporary Italy. Topics include the refugee crises, the politician Beppe Grillo, contemporary Italian poetry, Italian film history, and health and wellness issues. All articles were were written directly in Italian by the students in the class.
Contributing students: Nick Barney, Henrietta Hadley, Nick Hennessy, Veronica Jorgensen, Christina Polanen, Emily Tegel, and Bella Wang.
