Expanding the concept of 'Italianness': the evolution of Italian culture outside Italy
Since its unification in 1861, Italy has experienced significant migration towards countries with better living conditions. In migration, Italians developed cultural texts in Italian and other languages which are often excluded from the study of Italian culture. By focusing on those texts, the EU-funded TransIT project intends to promote a more open and complex perception of Italian culture in higher education. The project will focus on the Italian-speaking and English-speaking worlds and will take into consideration race and gender-specific cultural testimonies. It will expand the concept of 'Italianness' by exploring cultural products such as literature, movies, newspapers and other historical documents, to study the evolution of Italian culture outside Italy in a multidisciplinary perspective. The project aims to provide an interactive, bilingual online multimedia resource that makes this part of Italian culture available in both Italian and English.
