“Abbiamo fatto l’Italia, ora dobbiamo fare gli italiani” is the well-known phrase which many attribute to Massimo D’Azeglio. With the current demographic transformation, the question still holds true and demands an investigation into what ‘Italy’ and ‘Italian’ stand for. This question was asked to mixed classes (composed by Italians with and without foreign background) of the following three high schools in Milan which were also selected for Objective 3 of this research.
On the basis of two introductory lectures – one on Italian history and one on immigration and second generation – the students were asked to produce videos, posters, and PowerPoint presentations which were then discussed in class. These visual products are listed here below classified by school.
