What is the course about?

The course will explore the hidden truth that lies beyond the long and painful process which led to the Unità d'Italia. We will focus on the Reign of Two Sicilies, which was mostly affected by the unification, both in terms of human and economic losses.

This is a live online course. You will need:
- Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
- A computer with microphone and camera is best (e.g. a PC/laptop/iMac/MacBook), or a tablet/iPad/smart phone/iPhone if you don't have a computer.
- Earphones/headphones/speakers.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.

What will we cover?

The topics covered will be: a brief introduction to Italian history and its leading figures before the unification (1861); a journey into the Reign of two Sicilies which, at the time, was the most developed region of Italy and whose capital, Naples, was the third European city after London and Paris; the role played by the English; the civil war that broke out in the south of Italy in the aftermath of the unification.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

By the end of the seminar students should be able to talk about and comment on literary texts, and be able to discuss and debate one of the lesser known and most hidden aspects of Italian history.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

This lecture will be conducted in Italian and is therefore aimed at those of you with an advanced level of the language. It is suitable if you are attending Italian 4 or 5 at Citylit or have an equivalent level.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

This is a lecture and is therefore tutor-led. Facts will be presented through the use of video clips, presentations, hand-outs etc.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

No other cost. Students will just need to bring a pen and paper.
