Oriana Fallaci

THIS IS A 3-WEEK COURSE DURING SESSION II

Oriana Fallaci and The Historical Events of her Time

Fallaci is the only Italian journalist known throughout the world and whose fame has endured for forty years, a writer whose works have been translated throughout the world “Letter to a Child Never Born”, perhaps her greatest editorial success, has been translated in 23 languages. This course aims to examine the professional and human experience of a captivating but elusive figure who was herself a great narrator of her own life and of the historical events in which she became involved. The course will be neither hagiographic nor commemorative, but rather an open exchange with students designed to re-evoke and, above all, to recount a “myth”.
