About Italian Food.

According to Giorgio Locatelli, “The land determines what you put on your plate.” Nonetheless, in this Module you learned that historical and political events play an important role in shaping culinary habits. Discuss the synergy between what seems unchanging, i.e. the territory, and the ever-changing human dimensions (geographic discoveries, wars, invasions, migrations, industrialization, and globalization, to mention just a few). Don’t forget the effects of the unification of Italy. Make specific references to the readings and the videos. Your mark will reflect the level and quality of your engagement with the material you studied. Lack of specificity will result in a lower mark.
