Pirelli Foundation, Fondazione ISEC and Fondazione Cineteca Italiana are joining forces again this year to put on Cinema & History, a training and refresher course for primary and secondary school teachers of Lombardy Region.
Starting in February 2020, the new series of meetings alternates lectures and conversations with professors from various university faculties in Italy with film screenings at the Museo Interattivo del Cinema (MIC) in Milan.
This eighth edition – History and objects: consumption, genres, products – focuses on the world of consumption and, more in general, on the objects that surround us as a reflection of society. By examining the modern and contemporary age, the course reinterprets the great flows of history, bringing together different visions and cultures.
The course consists of nine meetings, all of which are held on Mondays, from 3 to 6 p.m., at the venues indicated.
Teachers who sign up for the course are provided with course materials and, upon termination, a certificate of participation.
