These themes include the production and consumption of culture (media and film industries; media cities; cultural production clusters; culture-led urban regeneration; and city branding and identity through culture. The focus will be both larger (Milan, Bologna, Roma) and smaller (Prato, Florence) Italian cities, which will provide field work sites and case studies. This unit, taught intensively in block mode, may also include field trips to cities outside of Italy.
