Cinema & History 2019/2020 – History and Objects: Consumption, Genres, Products
Webinar, Monday 7 September 2020, 3-6 p.m.
After the temporary closure, the training and refresher course for Cinema & History teachers organised by the Pirelli Foundation, Fondazione ISEC, and the Fondazione Cineteca Italiana, is starting up again for primary and secondary school teachers.
After the first two introductory lessons that were held in February by university professors Marco Meriggi and Raimonda Riccini, an online seminar will be held on Monday 7 September 2020, during which the course topics will be examined in detail. Speakers at the meeting will be Imma Forino of the Politecnico di Milano University, Emanuela Scarpellini of the University of Milan, and Antonio Calabrò, director of the Pirelli Foundation. Together, they will investigate issues concerning THE HOME, and in particular those of the kitchen environment, of CLOTHING, including the complex evolution of Italian fashion, and finally of being ON THE MOVE, from the years of the economic boom through to the current drive towards sustainable mobility. After each of the three speeches, the Fondazione Cineteca Italiana will present a film devoted to each one.
