Are you interested in Italian food, fashion or cars? Or, do you prefer the artisinal products of Italy like ceramics, lace, glass and marble? Or, better yet, Italy as a design capitol of the world? 

If any of the above is true, join the Italian Program’s May intersession trip to Taormina, Sicily (May 11-25, 2024), and live the “White Lotus” life. 

In this course, we will 

  • Learn about Italian prodcuts: Why does MADE IN ITALY interest consumers internationally? Why are customers willing to pay a higher price if the product is MADE IN ITALY? Join us in Taormina, Sicily, to explore these questions and more!
  • Explore the 5 “A”s: Abbigliamento (clothes), Agroalimentare (food & wine), Arredamento (furniture & design), Automazione (automobiles & machinery) and Artigianale (artisanal)
  • Delve into experiental learning: This class will be split between lectures, seminars and 12 onsite lessons, along with two Unesco site visits. Taught in English; three credits. This course counts for the Italian major and minor.
