In the narrative about Italy as a nation state a series of
groups and places have been seen as marginal and excluded.
In this course we study some of these “margins,” Italy’s old

we select together during the course.
We will examine how these “margins” have acquired their present
status and study the power relations behind the divisions between
“center” and “margins.”
