Lower division
Full credit
MTuThF, 9:15 AM - 11:50 AM

CULTURE: In this course, students will learn about the people and places of the Little Italy neighborhoods in the Bay Area. They will also learn about Italian cuisine connected with the Italian communities. Students will interact with Italians in the Bay Area and in Italy and virtually visit restaurants, cafes, lounges, and other places where Italians gather in the Bay Area and in Italy. 

In addition, students will participate every week in cultural workshops. These workshops are designed to help students learn hands-on about Italian culture including food, coffee shops, and hobbies of Italians in the Bay Area. 

Students will make pesto from scratch, learn and make “soffritto,” build an interactive map, make Caprese salad, play the card game Scopa, and virtually tour San Francisco and parts of Italy. Students will also learn the basics of the Italian language, with an emphasis on communicating with people in real-life situations.
