"Uno sguardo sull'Italia attraverso i testi letterari."

Delve deeper into Italian culture as you hone your language skills with the help of some of Italy's most prominent writers of contemporary literature. This versatile and compact textbook for intermediate-advanced level students brings together a multitude of diverse literary extracts to create a thorough overview of Italy as a whole. Like fragments of a kaleidoscope, each text reflects a specific aspect of Italian life which together create a vast and detailed window on Italian culture and society.

"Caleidoscopio italiano" is ideal both for self-study and class-based teaching. The texts are arranged into six thematic units, each complete with a variety of exercises to develop students' linguistic skills. The first four chapters cover the following broad topics: language and linguistic trends; geography, landscapes and cities; people and society; and food, habits and popular culture. Chapter 5 is a focus point on emigration and immigration and how this has shaped the Italy we see today, while the final chapter looks at the contemporary cultural phenomenon that is: 'il giallo'. Each unit incorporates further cultural inserts and suggestions for related reading. They are also supported by audio recordings and extra activities which are available online, in addition to teacher's resources and solutions to the exercises.
