II SEMESTRE (inizio lezioni: 4 febbraio 2019):

 

ARTH 205: Reading Bologna & Italy from the Renaissance to the Baroque.

Prof. Elisabetta Cunsolo
This course examines the lively artistic atmosphere of Bologna from the 15th to the early 17th century and the effects that society, economy, and politics had on the production of art during those centuries. Works of art will be studied with a specific interest in their intellectual, religious, and social connections to the historical context in which they were created. 

Bolognese artworks will be used as primary sources. Through the study of the most significant ones, compared to coeval Central and Northern Italian works of art, students will learn the authentic novelty and excellence of the art of Bologna. Many lessons will be taught on site for a better comprehension of the historical context in which the artworks were designed and for a better appreciation of each single work of art analyzed in all its different aspects: iconography, technique, dimension, style.

 

HIST 213: History of the Mafia in Italy

Prof. Sandra Cavallucci
This course is a social history of the mafia. The course analyses the Sicilian Mafia and other Italian mafia-like crime syndicates such as Camorra and 'Ndrangheta through a historical, social and cultural perspective, tracing their progression from the national unity of Italy to the present day. By the end of this course students should: acquire a broad understanding of the history of the mafia; be able to distinguish between stereotypes and the reality of the mafia; understand the mafia’s relationship to broader trends in Italian history; be aware of the role of mafia in Italy and in the world.

 

 

 POSC 275: Italian Politics

Prof. Gianfranco Baldini

This course introduces students to the institutions of Italian government and the functioning of Italian politics more in general. Starting from the historical development of the State, it looks at its evolution, as well as at the main societal transformations in the most recent decades. It gives a broad overview of the main institutions and players in the Italian system, setting them in a comparative (mainly European) context. The course will emphasize the role of political actors – especially the political parties – as well as the formal institutions of the State. Topics covered also include the role of European integration and the external profile of Italy, the territorial dimension of politics, the dynamics of the Welfare state.

 

 

INBM 300: Management of food, wine and tourism in Italy

Prof. Ludovica Leone

Food and wine are fundamental elements of Italian culture as they reflect the huge diversity and richness of the country. Beside the cultural relevance, they represent one of the most important industries in Italy, currently experiencing continuous growth, especially in the international markets. The aims of the course are to specify the key features of food and wine companies, investigate their managerial issues and challenges, and highlight reasons for their global success.

In particular, the course will cover the following points:

  • What “made in Italy” is and the main sources of competitive advantage for Italian companies, beyond the food and wine industry (packaging, automotive, luxury, design…);
  • A general overview of the characteristics of the food, wine, and tourist industry in Italy;
  • The use of “country of origin effect”;
  • The industrial districts of “made in Italy” and their business drivers;
  • The major business innovation trends (introduction of 4.0) and contemporary challenges companies currently face in their growth strategies;
  • The new retail strategies for food and wine;
  • Italian haute cuisine industry, from creativity to the valorization of local productions;
  • The diversity in food and wine business models from multinationals to small medium entrepreneurial ventures;
  • The role of food and wine in destination management;
  • The role of local networks in sustainable tourism development.

The lectures will combine an accessible introduction to specific themes integrated with visits and guest lectures of managers and experts of the field that will give insights and examples to the participants from real cases.

 

 

POSC 290: International Organizations & Governance in Europe

Prof. Andrew Wolff

This course explores how European-based international organizations (IOs) manage a variety of economic, security, and social issues. The course introduces students to international governance theory, details the institutional frameworks and functions of IOs, and maps the overlapping network of IOs in Europe. Next, the course highlights the challenges of decision-making, dispute adjudication, and policy implementation at the interstate level within Europe by drawing upon case studies from the European Union, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the International Criminal Court, the Council of Europe, the World Trade Organization, and the United Nation’s World Food Program. The overall aim of the course is to provide students with analytical tools and detailed knowledge for understanding the political and managerial complexity of IOs and for engaging with the debates about how IOs deal with human rights violations, trade disputes, economic crises, conflict resolution, and peace-keeping operations.
