By Anna Cellinese
Voci Italiane: Contemporary Readings for Intermediate to Advanced Students presents intermediate to advanced students of Italian with a series of calibrated and thought-provoking readings from both contemporary Italian fiction and non-fiction.
Voci Italiane exposes learners to the authentic language of 21st-century authors whose voices and work reflect and form part of the diverse sociocultural fabric of today’s Italy. The readings expose learners to authentic materials that provoke a reflection on intercultural competence, diversity, and social justice issues and are accompanied by exercises and writing activities. The contemporary and engaging topics covered include gender and race, multiculturalism and plurilingualism, disability, political upheaval, and alternative forms of authorship in art such as graffiti, street art, and underground rap.
This book is ideal for intermediate and advanced learners of Italian as a foreign language seeking to expand on their knowledge and understanding of lexical and grammatical structures in Italian, with a focus on 21st-century Italy. It is suitable for use as a primary text for both class-based and independent study.
Anna Cellinese is a senior lecturer and director of the Italian language program at Princeton University.
