Italy for Beginners. An Introduction to Italian Culture (6 ECTS)
All exchange and degree-seeking international students are warmly invited to attend this course to get acquainted with Italy under different perspectives: from history and traditions to geography, from literature and art to cinema.
Participants will also explore some crucial issues such as: Italian identity and the most common stereotypes, the role of the Catholic religion, television and media, the reasons of the resounding success that the “made in Italy” achieves abroad (e.g. fashion, football, etc.).
The seminars will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Department of Humanities (Via Tomaso Gar 14), room 114 - first floor.
Housing delivery declaration - "cessione di fabbricato"
We remind all Non-European students who are staying in private accommodations that:
• if they are hosting a Non-European citizen for more than 2 days, they should report it within 48 hours to the local Police Station by filling in the Housing Delivery Declaration form (in Italian "Cessione d fabbricato");
• if they are hosted by someone else, they should remind the host to report their presence within 48 hours to the local Police Station. The host should submit the Housing Delivery Declaration form (in Italian "Cessione d fabbricato").
The form is also available on this UniTrento webpage. Failing to do the above might cause to get fined for the guest.
