IR/HS 343 - Italy and the United States: History of a Long-Standing Interaction

The course will focus on the events that followed World War I and more specifically on the events that occurred during the Cold War and the post-Cold War periods. Also, a large part of the course will be devoted to current events. Given the mixed composition of the class, which is opened both to Italian and to American students, the course will emphasize the aspects of cross-cultural exchange along with the ability of the students to elaborate their own ideas and positions with respect to the different issues that will be treated. Finally, Italian policy will be studied also in the context of the more general European scenario in which it has developed since the end of World War II.
