This textbook for intermediate to advanced level Italian courses employs an interdisciplinary approach to explore the culture of the southern Italian region from 1935 to the present.  It is structured around Carlo Levi, a 20th century writer, painter and social activist, and it includes excerpts from his classic novel, Christ Stopped at Eboli. Historical and cultural information that pertain to the novel and images of Levi’s paintings are interwoven to encourage students to connect literature, art, and film in ways that are designed to sharpen their critical thinking skills, as well as their language skills.

Daniela Bartalesi-Graf is a Lecturer in Italian in the Department of Italian Studies at Wellesley College.
