  • Overview

    Television, advertising and music have had and still have great influence on everyday?s life, habits and behaviour in Italy. Since its beginning in 1954, television moulded popular culture; in the ?80s advertising proposed a new lifestyle for a generation and music provided the ever changing sound track for young and adults. The course will focus on these three different industries that will be studied and analyzed both from the point of view of history and theory and from a practical and productive one. In-class lectures and visit to a television production studio, an ad agency and meetings with professionals will enable students to understand the basic skills and the Italian peculiarities in using the analyzed media.
