Languages and Intercultural Relations: Considerations for a Unit on Our Italian Heritage.
De Gaetano, Armand L.
A review of historically and sociologically significant cultural interrelations between Italy and its language and the world commences with a historical sketch from the Roman period. The author examines reasons for the rebirth of interest in Italian culture and suggests that the best approach to developing an appreciation of the culture is the study of the language. Concluding remarks present an outline for a study unit on Italian culture including: (1) pre-Roman period; (2) Rome; (3) Middle Ages; (4) Renaissance; (5) Baroque, Neoclassical, and Romantic periods; (6) Italians in the United States of America; (7) twentieth century influences; and (8) contrastive linguistic study of English and Italian. A bibliography is included. (RL)
