In Italian, somewhere between language & culture Author: G. Stefancich ISBN: 88-7573-350-3Price: 11.50 euro Pages: 104 There is much more to Italian culture than literature, history and great art. Cose dItalia focuses on the cultural wealth inherent in everyday experi-ences and community living and includes the common knowledge that makes up the fabric of the Italian culture. This book serves as a bridge between language and culture, investigating all of the linguistic and popular elements that somehow escape translation and are inseparably linked to cultural data. To the newcomer, Cose dItalia, offers a guide in six chapters that explores the links between the Italy (geography, institutions, religion, memories of school, cooking, cinema, etc.) and the Italian language. Each chapter contains an introduction to a theme, followed by a variety of cultural exercises. The exercise key provides complete and extensive answers, making the book a perfect tool for both classroom and self-study learning.
